Where can we find lineage information for Construction Battalions and Navy shore commands. For example, is there an official lineage history of the Navy Experimental Diving Unit or Navy Installations Command?  FYI we are building some local authority and Library of congress authority records.

I have some vague recollection that DTIC was looking into this issue in the 1980's (yes, I know that was a long time ago!).

FYI,  the Naval Academy is operational during the pandemic and the Nimitz Library is open.  Midshipmen are frequently tested and live in a bubble at USNA.  We don't have enough housing in Mother B (Bancroft Hall) for the brigade in this pandemic environment - so we lease the dorms at the St. John's College campus in Annapolis the semester.  Third week of operations - so far so good.
