About the CTIO (NOAO-South) Libraries

The CTIO Libraries are research libraries that support the work of CTIO and Gemini scientific staff and visitors by providing and facilitating access to information found in both electronic and paper materials.

The physical collection consists of books, journals, and observatory publications in astronomy, physics, mathematics, science, and technology. The libraries have complete runs of the major astronomical journals (some dating from the 19th century), including ApJ, AJ, MNRAS, and A&A.

The journals and observatory publications are located at Cerro Tololo; the books and the last two years of journals are located mostly in La Serena. The CTIO libraries share the same library catalog with the NOAO library in Tucson.

New issues of journals are no longer received in paper format (with a few exceptions). These issues are available electronically through subscriptions available from the library webpage and online library catalog. The electronic journal subscriptions at CTIO, Tucson, and Gemini are different (not shared).

The library maintains the journal subscriptions, circulates materials, obtains articles, and provides reference assistance.
