CTIO Libraries

The CTIO (NOAO-South) 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 sources.

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 library catalog with the NOAO-North library in Tucson (see 1st entry in left navigation bar for link to online catalog).

New issues of journals are no longer received in paper format (with a few exceptions). The electronic journals available to NOAO-South through subscriptions can be accessed from the Electronic Resources webpage.

The library staff maintain the physical collection, circulate materials, obtain articles and books, track publications that make use of NOAO-S telescope data and publications by NOAO-S scientific staff, and provide reference assistance.
