Library Locations

One Library: Two Locations

The NCAR Library is one library with two primary locations, each uniquely servicing all major campuses. Both the Mesa and Foothills Labs libraries are staffed regularly from 9am to noon, Monday through Friday. Email NCAR Library if you need additional assistance between noon and 5 pm. NCAR and UCAR staff have 24-hour access to the library. Every location provides meeting spaces as well as access to e-mail, the Internet, copiers, printers, and scanners. Each location also has a unique set of hardcopy journals and books, so consult the NCAR Library catalog, for a book or journal's specific location. Learn more about checking out library materials.

A third library is open for browsing and quiet reading at the Center Green campus (Bldg 1, 2nd floor north). Commonly used by High Altitude Observatory (HAO) staff, this location is not regularly staffed by NCAR Library personnel. However, help is available from staff in the Library office area, just around the corner from the library (follow the signs).

The NCAR Archives can be accessed by appointment at the Mesa Lab.

For immediate assistance, email NCAR Library or contact one of our library staff members directly.
