Research: Other Libraries

SCAMPI

The Joint Forces Staff College Ike Skelton Library is a specialized military library, focusing on research in joint and multinational operations, military history and naval science, operational warfare, and operations other than war. Library staff members regularly scan the weekly news magazines, monthly and bimonthly journals such as Military Review, Armed Forces Journal, and quarterly publications, including NATO's Nations and Partners for Peace, RUSI Journal, and the Naval War College Review. Miscellaneous reports from RAND and the General Accounting Office are also indexed for SCAMPI. The resulting database serves as a guide to articles on military and naval art and science, operational warfare, joint planning, national and international politics, and other areas researched by JFSC faculty, staff, and students. The SCAMPI database covers the period from 1985 thru the present.

Commandant's Corner

...we’ll be able to conduct classes soon thereafter. DISCS faculty at WPAFB will continue to support DISCS-NCR courses in both interim and long term operations. This is to help ensure the important integration among our faculty, DSCA headquarters personnel and representatives of organizations and agencies in the NCR remains robust.

Work continues on the Security Cooperation Workforce Development Program (SCWDP) effort with regular meeting of the Working Group – the next one anticipated in early April at this point. DISCS is concentrating effort on developing the new curriculum necessary to support the future Security Cooperation Workforce certification requirements. We anticipate that our first new online courses will be available in early spring (2019). We expect that the first of our new hybrid courses (online and classroom) will be ready in the late spring of 2019. Stand by for announcements and registration opportunities for these and other courses as each nears readiness. DISCS will continue to teach legacy courses while new courses are developed. While there may not be a 100 percent transfer of credit for one course to a new course there will be some credit that is transferred based on the gaps of competency coverage between course, the legacy courses are still valuable to the workforce (provide needed training) and I highly encourage the workforce to continue to attend them. Remember, DISCS centrally funds the TDY expenses for our students. All course information and the ability to register for them resides on this website.

Lastly, I’d note that DISCS is coming up on its Reaffirmation of Accreditation Visit by the Council on Occupational Education (COE). The team will visit our WPAFB location on 8-12 April. This culminates the Self-Study activity by our faculty and staff documenting the activity dealing with 10 Standards of the evaluation with a range of areas from Educational Programs to Strategic Planning to Student Services and Activities to name only three of them. We look forward to that team’s visit – these occur generally every 5-6 years with annual updates provided to COE in years where there is no visit.

Will update this as often as possible to keep you informed in a timely way in this fast-paced environment.

Sincerely,
Dr. Ron Reynolds
