The McDonald Observatory Library is located in the Otto Struve dome, home of the 82-inch telescope. The library serves the staff of the observatory, visiting astronomers and members of the Department of Astronomy. A variety of print and online resources in astronomy and related fields are available through the library.
You may find that you need library materials that are not available at the McDonald Observatory Library. Please see InterLibrary Services (ILS) to request material from UT Campus or another institution.
All electronic journals and publications purchased by The University of Texas at Austin are available to the staff and students of the Department of Astronomy and the McDonald Observatory. You will need your UT EID to access these materials when you are offsite. UT EID Self-Service Tools can sometimes help resolve UT EID problems.
