Scientiæ Cedit Mare

Translated from Latin, the Academy motto Scientiæ Cedit Mare means "The sea yields to knowledge". These words were established as the Academy's motto in 1902. As the center of academic life at the Academy, the library takes great pride in developing each Cadets' ability to improve their research skills in an ever-changing environment. These skills not only prepare the Cadets for further academic study, but are vital to their success as officers in the field. 

The present-day library is located in Waesche Hall. Dedicated to Admiral Russell R. Waesche, the Hall opened in June of 1973. Waesche Hall was also designed with a wing to house a Coast Guard Museum and the capabilities for a educational media center.
