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
LPL Library Services
The catalog provides access to the materials in the Kuiper Building, the reading room in the Sonett Building as well as selected items in the Space Imagery Center.
