Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Right now, many library locations have opened for limited hours. Members of the Yale community have a choice between contactless and mediated checkouts, and many study spaces are available. Librarian consultation services, workshops, and instruction remain remote until further notice.
This guide contains important information about connecting to a variety of library resources. In addition to the content on the guide, let me stress:
QuickSearch Books+ has faceted searching. If you are only looking for online content, after searching, please select "Online" under format. The Library has made significant updates to QuickSearch to facilitate users who need online-only materials.
Library staff are still here to support you in your teaching, learning, and research. Please contact me using the information on my profile (below). You may email or schedule a Zoom appointment.
AstroBetter is a blog devoted to professionalism in astronomy. You can use the search box to locate everything from a list of tools (like VoxCharta) that you can use to read the arXiv better to information on creating good plots and career advice.
The ADS is the primary tool used by astronomers to find articles, gray literature, and other content. When you search, the tools and filters allow you to drill down to what you want — be it a set of papers related to a specific data archive (such as MAST) or on a specific topic (see the concept cloud under the EXPLORE drop-down menu). Documentation on advanced search is available on the ADS help page. ADS Bumblebee replaces the Classic ADS search, which will be retired on May 31, 2019.
The American Astronomical Society (AAS) and IOP Publishing have partnered to create a collection of astronomy ebooks on a variety of topics. These will be available to read online in HTML format, but also as PDF and epub downloads.
