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The library maintains and circulates a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology.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

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized and providing a stable record of your research activities and publications. If you'd like more information on ORCID or help in developing your ORCID profile, please see Sharon.
Dennis Crabtree has created a June 2015 Observatory Update with metrics on telescope data publications.
The new printer in the library is also a copier and scanner. You can scan documents to a USB drive or scan them to your e-mail account.
