The NCAR Library and Archives supports and collaborates in UCAR/NCAR/UCP scholarly work and educational activities by providing information, preservation, access, metrics, and citation services over research, technology, educational and historical materials. To meet this mission, we:
- Provide and promote access to, and preservation of, collections that are required for research, for historical record, and for accountability
- Provide and promote access to the scholarship and resources needed by the institution's staff to succeed (e.g. Catalogs, Journals, Books, Reports, Data, etc.)
- Provide and promote comprehensive and timely services to our users in a seamless environment that allows them to accomplish their work accurately and efficiently
- Provide metrics on institutional impact including scholarship (peer-reviewed and grey) and facilities use to aid decision making and reporting (NAR, etc.).
A world class facility deserves a world class library. We envision the NCAR Library as an integral component of our institutional mission and a recognized leader in the provision of atmospheric and Earth science resources and information services. View the full strategic plan.
