Restricted Resources

Supporting the NPS community in their classified and unclassified research needs

RRS is a special collection within the Dudley Knox Library supporting restricted and classified research needs at NPS. Materials in the collection support most of the subjects taught in the various curricula at the Naval Postgraduate School, and derive from a spectrum of Federal, DOD, and other contractor agencies, commands, institutions and organizations.

RRS also specializes in providing consulting support to the NPS community on topics such as NPS document lifecycle and archiving, marking / upgrading / downgrading of NPS restricted and classified materials, database and data categorization projects.
