The A. P. Møller Defence Research Library/Information Resource Centre is a specialised military library within the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL).

The library's primary goal is to support the BALTDEFCOL's courses and research programme.  The library's collection focuses on military art and science, military strategy and tactics, military technology, strategic and security studies, international relations, and military history.  

The library is open to the public and all readers have a lending right. The lending time depends on the book sought and can vary overnight to three weeks. Outside readers must return any borrowed books before the due date if they are needed by faculty or students at the BALTDEFCOL.
