Barbara Marshallek, librarian at the Offizierschule des Heeres (The German Army Officers’ School in Dresden), recently visited the USMA Library. She met with library staff to gain a greater understanding of our facilities and functions. At the conclusion of her time visiting the library, she gave the USMA Library staff a presentation about The German Army Officers’ Academy in Dresden and its library. We were surprised to learn that the German Army Officers’ School staff is not nearly as large as West Point’s. Ms. Marshallek’s presentation was very enlightening, showing historical documents and visuals of the German library. The staff thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our German counterpart!
