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The library maintains and circulates a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology. These materials may be checked out for an indefinite period of time, but after two weeks, if another patron wishes to see the material, we will recall it. We do not share circulation information with staff.
Physical Space: The library provides areas
for quiet study and for collaborative meetings. We also have a public printer, scanner, computer, and whiteboard.
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, incl. data from the Science Data Archive at NOAO) and
from NOAO-granted community-access time on non-NOAO
