Mission The Navy Department Library, founded in 1800 by the executive order of President John Adams, promotes the operational effectiveness of the United States Navy through the support of strategic planning, the education of naval personnel and the nation, and the inculcation of pride in the heritage of the naval service. By acquiring, organizing, preserving, and providing access, through reference services and Internet outreach, to pertinent books, manuscripts, and other textual sources, the Navy Department Library enhances and enriches the understanding of naval and maritime history, customs, and traditions. Library History The Navy Department Library traces its roots to a letter dated 31 March 1800 from President John Adams to Secretary of the Navy Benjamin Stoddert directing him to establish a library that would contain "the best writing...on the theory and practice of naval architecture, navigation, gunnery...." From that beginning, the Library's collections have grown to 170,934 books, 343,799 manuscripts, as well as thousands of periodicals and government documents, with an emphasis on naval, military, and nautical history including foreign navies. The Library is home to the most comprehensive collection of historical literature on the United States Navy. One of the few major military historical libraries open to the public, the library serves an international audience. It provides resources vital to the writing and publishing of naval history, as well as information relating to the needs of today's US Navy. The Navy Department Library joined the Federal Depository Library Program in 1895. The library's older holdings are included in the National Union Catalog of Pre-1956 Imprints , a set of 754 volumes, compiled from 1968 to 1981. The library uses the Library of Congress Classification system, and employs OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) services to assist in cataloging and interlibrary loan. The publicly accessible interface to OCLC is Worldcat, which allows researchers to search for items and determine which libraries, including the Navy Department Library, they are located in. The Library's catalog is online. Individual highlights of the collection include the US Navy's first signal book, Thomas Truxtun's Instructions, Signals and Explanations... (1797); David Porter's signal book (1809); rare Confederate and Union signal books; calling cards collected by John Paul Jones in Russia; hundreds of unpublished World War II administrative and cryptological histories; translations of war diaries from various German Navy headquarters; material captured on the German submarine U-505 in 1944; and a collection of ship half-hull models. For further information see "History of the Navy Department Library" which contains links to online manuscripts and published sources about the library. Subjects Emphasized -Naval, maritime, and military history -Naval architecture and shipbuilding -Naval customs and traditions -Naval doctrine -Naval ordnance -Naval shore and fleet activities -Naval uniforms, insignia, and awards -Navigation, voyages, and exploration Special and Rare Collections -Cruise books -Cryptologic documents -Early military periodicals -Foreign language periodicals -General/special orders and circulars (pre-World War II) -Manuscript collection (including letters, journals, diaries, logbooks, etc.) -Menus -Naval administrative histories of World War II -Naval Technical Mission to Japan reports -Navy officer registers (1800-1994) and directories (1908-1942) -Navy shipbuilding contracts -Navy uniforms -Navy Z files -Newsletters -Secretary of the Navy annual reports (1822-1948) Resources -Catalog searchable in library only -Naval History and Heritage Command home -Government Depository Library (see Collection Development Policy) -Microfilm/Fiche reader/printer -Photocopier -Vertical and pamphlet files Circulation Policy Personnel stationed or employed on the Washington Navy Yard may borrow materials for one month. The Library participates in interlibrary loan. Rare, Special Collection, and Reference books, as well as bound periodicals do not circulate. The Library reserves the right to refuse to circulate or permit the reproduction of any items considered unique or fragile. Items over 100 years old are not available for interlibrary loan. Faxed requests for interlibrary loan are not accepted. Reference Assistance and Policy The Library provides limited telephone, in person and written reference assistance. Detailed questions requiring in-depth research must be conducted in person at the library or by employing a commercial research service. Typically, the staff will suggest possible sources of information, such as a book or archival facility, to assist patrons in conducting their own research. A careful examination of the NHHC's Frequently Asked Questions will provide answers to many questions. Simple questions such as "When was USS America (CV-66) commissioned?" or "Who was the Secretary of the Navy in 1938?" can sometimes be answered via telephone. Hours of Operation Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. No reference assistance is available on Wednesdays.

This postcard can be found in our ZE place files in our Rare Book Room. The pictured postcard was sent by Robert Willis to June Staley less than a week after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. These postcards were an effort by military authorities to permit servicemembers to notify their loved ones of their status. Because of the uncertainties of the ongoing conflict, communication was limited to a choice of standard responses. The member was required to cross off statements that were inapplicable. Luckily, Willis indicates that he survived the attack without major injury.
In a time when Hawaii was a remote, hardship duty station, many of these postcards took an agonizing six weeks to reach the mainland. Little is known about the relationship between Willis and Staley, but it is believed that Willis was Staley’s high school friend.

The Navy Department Library pays homage to all veterans past and present.
In our ‘Menus from Ship to Shore’ collection a 1942 Armistice Day Dinner included the following message:
“We must develop in ourselves a stronger will to win than that which possesses our enemy. - How can we do this? Easy. We must forfeit all considerations for personal comfort and convenience, and live, breathe, sleep and dream only on an intensely burning desire to expend our utmost strength in our assigned tasks in this war. Until each one of us truly develops an unbeatable will to win, then and then only will our war effort reach its peak. And do not forget for one moment that anything short of that peak will come perilously close to failure.” To read the whole message and to see what was on the menu check it out here:

Happy Birthday Marines - 245 years young. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Happy 245th Birthday Marines!

"On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of the Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name Marine. In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our Corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history." - Gen John A. Lejeune, 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps

READ A WWII COASTWATCHER’S DIARY FROM THE SOLOMON ISLANDS

“6 November 1942. Sent two scouts overland to Lunga. They return same day with news that Japs are coming down on Tamoli. Send other scouts overland by Holavo trail. Write out SOS signal for planes, trying to stop landing of battalion. (This was the first of a series of panel signals. The signals were covered with cocoanut leaves until the identify of the plane passing by was certain). Send my forty Nala boys up to Timoli to try and stop the Japs. They found a patrol of five Japs close to Timoli but did not attack them because American planes strafed both sides.”

This entry is an excerpt from the WWII diary of Father Emery De Klerk, a Dutch Priest. He was a Coastwatcher for the allies at Tangarare in the Solomon Islands. He was awarded the US Medal of Freedom with Bronze Palm for his efforts. The 28-page diary that Father De Klerk kept between 1941-1944 is part of our Administrative Histories Appendices Collection located in the Rare Book Room.
The entire diary was just digitized and posted on our Online Reading Room

Check out ‘Origin of Navy Terminology’ and explore ‘bokoo’ words and phrases and their nautical beginnings. One such phrase is ‘Mind your Ps and Qs’
“There are few of us who have not at one time or another been admonished to "mind our Ps and Qs," or in other words, to behave our best. Oddly enough, "mind your Ps and Qs" had nautical beginnings as a method of keeping books on the waterfront.
In the days of sail when sailors were paid a pittance, seaman drank their ale in taverns whose keepers were willing to extend credit until payday. Since many salts were illiterate, keepers kept a talley of pints and quarts consumed by each sailor on a chalkboard behind the bar. Next to each person's name a mark was made under "P" for pint or "Q" for quart whenever a seaman ordered another draught.
On payday, each seaman was liable for each mark next to his name, so he was forced to "mind his Ps and Qs" or get into financial trouble. To ensure an accurate count by unscrupulous keepers, sailors had to keep their wits and remain somewhat sober. Sobriety usually ensured good behavior, hence the meaning of "mind your Ps and Qs."

I've been trying to figure out when Rear Admiral William Mack Angas met Rear Admiral Logan C. Ramsey, the original owner of the navigation watch.In the navigation booklet from 1932 Motor boating magazine W.M. Angas lists L.C. Ramsey as his friend and thanks him for his help.There are 3 year books that have information and pictures of W.M. Angas from 1917 to 1919 of his time at MIT.One of the books is MIT,s contributions to the WW1 war effort.William Mack Angas was commissioned Lt.Jg. C.E.C. U.S.N. 27 Dec. 1917 and assigned to the United States Naval Academy as a navigation instructor the 1st of July 1918.Midshipman Logan C. Ramsey was still in the Academy at this time but graduated that year.I'm still trying to figure out if Cmdr P.V.H. Weems, the inventor of the watch was also an instructor at the Academy at this timehttp://web.mit.edu/technique/www/scans/1919_War_Record.pdf I'm also missing a lot of Cmdr.P.V.H. Weems Naval record from 1912 to 1919.
