The NOAA Central Library provides reference services to all NOAA employees and contract employees, throughout the nation. Our librarians can provide you with quick and thorough answers to your questions. Whether you are looking for a book, article, or assistance with citation management, we can help. The best way to reach us is by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will respond to your request within 24 hours Monday-Friday EST. Some NOAA offices, labs, and regions also have a network library, which may also provide local services. Here are some ways our team can help you:
We understand that sometimes questions are better addressed by speaking with a librarian. Beyond our email reference, the reference team also provides virtual consultations for NOAA employees across the country. Consultations are available Tuesday and Thursdays 2-4 pm EST. If these times don't work with your schedule, we're also happy to take on consultations outside of these times - just email us at email@example.com
The NOAA Central Library is to support and further NOAA’s mission of promoting global environmental stewardship in order to conserve and wisely manage the Nation's marine and coastal resources; and describing, monitoring, and predicting changes in the Earth's environment in order to ensure and enhance sustainable economic opportunities.
