Military Libraries Division of the Special Libraries Association

Get to know one of ’s expert librarians! Military Libraries Division of the Special Libraries Association recently interviewed Ms. Amber Collins to find out how she got started in her career as a librarian. Check out the interview here.

How did you get involved in military librarianship? While I was in library school, one of my professors was a former DoDDS Librarian. The idea of being able to live in foreign countries and practice librarianship was intriguing. The State of Hawaii had a hiring freeze when I was graduating so I applied for a variety of positions within the DoD. [ 478 more words ]

Science Without Borders

Can a pumpkin-shaped, football stadium-size, super pressure balloon (SPB) technology become a competitive platform for scientific investigations?

’s SPB technology—made from a material that is similar to a sandwich bag, but is stronger and more durable—is expected to be capable of circumnavigating the globe. The long-duration flights enabled by the SPB technology will allow extended and nighttime observations of scientific phenomena in fields such as astrophysics, heliophysics and atmospheric research. These aspects, combined with the low cost of balloon missions, could give SPB an edge over other platforms that would need to be launched into orbit.

Snakebite Around the World: Molecular gel could save millions globally from death or disfigurement

Every year, nearly 4.5 million people worldwide are affected by snakebites, including Warfighters. That is why chemists at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) have decided to do something about it. Chemistry professor Dr. Kenneth Shea, noted, "If soldiers are bitten, they don't have a hospital nearby; they've got a medic with a backpack." Fortunately, UCI has developed a way to neutralize and halt deadly snake venom cheaply and more effectively than with traditional anti-venom.

Learn how UCI’s innovation can greatly benefit our military personnel stationed in the tropics and sub-Saharan Africa by visiting ’s collection at or DoDTechSpace at (for CAC, ECA, and PIV users only).

What is the US Military doing to prepare for the next frontier and possible threats?

In a recent report from CNN, : The Next Battlefield, the US’s growing dependency on satellites and GPS was explored. The US is more dependent on these resources than any other country. We rely on them to complete everyday task, from our morning commutes to processing bank transactions which puts us at risk for possible cyber-attacks. The US Military is aware of the potential risk and is working to develop the capabilities needed to defend our infrastructure in space.

Check out the Army’s new energy efficient pickup!

The Army’s Tank Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center ( ) has teamed up with General Motors to develop the Chevrolet Colorado , an energy-efficient pickup truck. The ZH2 runs on a hydrogen-powered fuel cell, making it emissions free. Unlike vehicles powered by diesel or gasoline, the ZH2 has no heat signature and maintains a muted volume, making it less detectable during undercover missions. The ZH2 can also be used as a cleaner alternative to a generator, providing 20 to 50 kilowatts of electric power. By blending power, efficiency, and technology, the Army and GM have created one of the most adept pickups today.

Our CAC, ECA, and PIV holders can read more about the ZH2 by visiting, or for more information on hydrogen power visit ’s collection at

El primer ministro, Benjamin Netanyahu, prometió que Irán no se afianzará en Siria para atacar a Israel. El primer ministro habló por video a los líderes judíos estadounidenses unas horas después de que Rusia aclaró que no tenía intención de sacar a las fuerzas militares de Teherán del país.

Todos debemos trabajar juntos para detener la agresión de Irán y su búsqueda de armas nucleares. Si nos mantenemos unidos lo lograremos. Pero si tenemos que hacerlo, estaremos solos. Irán no obtendrá armas nucleares. No convertirá a Siria en una base militar contra Israel ", dijo Netanyahu a la Federación Judía de la Asamblea General de América del Norte.

Irán no obtendrá armas nucleares. No convertirá a Siria en una base militar contra Israel ", afirmó el primer ministro. Además de enfatizar la consternación de Israel por el acuerdo nuclear con Irán, Netanyahu dijo:

"Debemos asegurarnos de que Irán nunca obtenga un arma nuclear.

"Irán está conspirando para atrincherarse militarmente en Siria. Quieren crear una presencia militar permanente aérea, terrestre y marítima, con la intención declarada de utilizar a Siria como base para destruir a Israel. No vamos a aceptar eso. He dicho muy claramente que Israel trabajará para detener esto ", dijo Netanyahu a la Federación Judía de la Asamblea General de América del Norte, que se reúne en Los Ángeles.
Todos debemos trabajar juntos para detener la agresión de Irán y su búsqueda de armas nucleares. Si nos mantenemos unidos lo lograremos. Pero si tenemos que hacerlo, estaremos solos. Irán no obtendrá armas nucleares. No convertirá a Siria en una base militar contra Israel ", afirmó el primer ministro.

Además de enfatizar la consternación de Israel por el acuerdo nuclear con Irán, Netanyahu dijo: "Debemos asegurarnos de que Irán nunca obtenga un arma nuclear. Esa es la línea de fondo y la más importante. El acuerdo nuclear de Irán no logra eso. Por el contrario, después de aproximadamente una década, dejará a Irán capaz de producir cientos de armas nucleares en muy poco tiempo, porque el acuerdo rescinde todas las limitaciones sobre la capacidad de enriquecimiento de Irán. Pueden tener cientos de miles de centrífugas y planean hacerlo ".

Tanto Israel como Estados Unidos creen que el Plan de Acción Integral Conjunto 2015, diseñado para limitar la capacidad nuclear de Irán, es peligroso porque deja a Teherán con la capacidad de crear armas nucleares.

Fuera de los EE. UU., Rusia, China, Gran Bretaña, Alemania y Francia firmaron el documento, pero ninguno de esos cinco países ha expresado interés en cambiar el documento.

Netanyahu ha dicho que se pueden establecer salvaguardas contra Irán, sin cambiar el texto.

El presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, ha creado una oportunidad para que las cinco potencias mundiales aborden las fallas del documento, dijo el primer ministro.

"Hay que corregirlo [el acuerdo con Irán], ya sea solucionándolo o negándolo", continuó Netanyahu, agregando que anteriormente había alentado a los líderes mundiales a tomar medidas para mejorar el documento.

"Irán es peligroso debido a su fanática ideología de conquista global, su creciente poder, su inquebrantable compromiso de destruir a Israel [y] su agresión sin adornos.

"Irán ya ha diseminado el conflicto en Medio Oriente, en Yemen, en Irak y Siria y Líbano. Estamos lejos de reconocer la amenaza iraní en el Medio Oriente. Los principales países árabes, Arabia Saudita, ven las cosas exactamente como nosotros. Tienen razón ", concluyó Netanyahu.
