About the NOAO-North Library


The NOAO-North Library is a research library that supports the research activities of NOAO (CTIO and KPNO) and NSO staff members by providing access to information found in both electronic and paper sources.

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The library maintains and circulates a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology.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 informational 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.
