NOAO-South (CTIO) Libraries
Librarian & Citation Analyst
Hours: 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The NOAO Library supports the mission of NOAO in the following ways:
Physical Collection: The library maintains and circulates a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology.
Electronic Resources: The library maintains a website to facilitate access to information in digital format, with links to electronic journals, reference sources, news items, and digital information sources.
Publications Lists: The librarian tracks publications of NOAO Scientific Staff and publications that cite the use of telescope data from NOAO facilities (CTIO, KPNO, SMARTS, SOAR, WIYN) and from NOAO-granted community-access time on non-NOAO telescopes.
Physical Space: The library provides areas for quiet study and for collaborative meetings.
Reference Services: The library purchases materials to support the research activities of NOAO staff; preserves, organizes, and provides access to NOAO historical information; facilitates access to information in digital format; locates and obtains journal articles; and fills information requests.

NOAO in the News
Nature magazine access policy change: All research papers from Nature will be made free to *read* in a proprietary screen-view format that can be annotated but *not* copied, printed or downloaded. This is a pilot program.
