LPL Library

Martian wind-blown deposits inside eroded craters

The LPL Library was established by Gerard P. Kuiper in 1962 as a reading room and ready-reference collection serving the LPL faculty, staff, and graduate students. The library's interdisciplinary collection supports research and teaching in planetary science, primarily at the graduate level.

The library also has a large collection of topographic maps, chiefly of Arizona and the Southwest. 

LPL Library is staffed for the Fall 2018 semester:

Monday 1:30-5:30 pm

Tuesday 9:00 am-5:00 pm

See the LPL Collection Guide (pdf file 399KB) and the LPL Circulation Procedures Guide (pdf file 349KB) for more information.
