On site: The Department houses a learning center with a large number of books, journals, government documents, and other reference works and research materials, including bibliographies and files on virtually all subjects covered by the curriculum. The Department's learning center holdings consist of materials central to DSS and include long-standing subscriptions to security journals and periodicals. Personal computers are available for student use in the DSS learning center.

Through an arrangement with nearby George Mason University (GMU), the Department provides a limited number of students with stack privileges at GMU's library. Students also have online access to a large number of periodicals through the Missouri State University library, and the Fairfax County library system offers a variety of resources. In addition, federal institutions, such as the Library of Congress and the National Archives, are located in the National Capital Region.

Turnitin. DSS has a Turnitin account for use checking for plagiarism in a paper. This is an especially helpful option for the student's thesis paper. Ask a Department Coordinator for more information.
