Webliography: Resources for Active Duty Soldiers and Veterans
This new annotated webliography appears in the September 2012 (73.8) issue of C&RL News. It was compiled and annotated by Karen Evans, reference and instruction librarian at Indiana State University’s Cunningham Memorial Library.
From the Introduction:
Numerous veterans face an uncertain future; dealing with physical, emotional, and mental health issues. Current soldiers may return from battle with emotional and physical concerns. Female soldiers and veterans may be dealing with the scars of sexual assault or harassment. The statistics should compel us to do everything we can to provide assistance to active military and retired personnel. This article details some of the resources available; librarians must be ready to assist active duty members, veterans, their families, and professional associates in locating resources to help members of the U.S. military, past and present.
