About McDonald Library
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. You may contact
Elise Nacca at the Péridier Library or Molly White in the Physics-Math-Astronomy Library for help obtaining materials
on the Austin campus or through InterLibrary Loan.
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. Please contact one of the people below if you encounter any difficulty with your EID or online access.
