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:

    Informational 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.
    Contact the Librarian

    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.
    NOAO Library Electronic Resources (incl. journals)
    The Library maintains the NOAO Digital Archives (images, videos, and audio files), which is available to staff only through links on the Intranet.

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The library maintains and circulates a collection of books, journals, atlases, observatory publications, and historical documents in astronomy, mathematics, physics, science, and technology.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