About the NOAO Library

The NOAO-Tucson Library is a research library that supports the work of NOAO and NSO staff members by facilitating access to information found in both electronic and paper sources.

The library maintains a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology to support the research activities of NOAO, NSO, and KPNO.

The library maintains a website with access to electronic journals, NOAO publications lists, and NOAO Library information, along with links to external reference sources.

Staff of Steward Observatory and LPL may also use the NOAO Library, although they should consult their institution's library first. The NOAO library is not open to the public.

The NOAO Library supports the mission of NOAO by
  • facilitating access to information in digital format through its webpages, with links to information sources, news items on astronomy, and electronic journals
  • handling journal subscriptions (print and electronic)
  • maintaining and circulating a physical collection of books and journals
  • locating and obtaining journal articles and books
  • answering reference queries to aid in research endeavors
  • offering public computers and printer
  • providing areas for quiet study and collaborative meetings
  • preserving the history of NOAO through its historical collections
  • compiling lists of publications by NOAO staff, observers using CTIO and KPNO data and facilities, and observers using NOAO-granted community-access time on non-NOAO telescopes
