The Observatory maintains a specialist library for the support of
teaching and research at Mill Hill.
This library is modest in size and resources;
its current role is to complement the much larger DMS Watson Library
located at UCL's main site in Bloomsbury, central London, and the
increasing range of material now accessible on-line. In particular,
many printed journals now available through the
NASA ADS services have been discarded, together with a range of
data CDs and similar materials now readily available through
Communications from the University of
London Observatory (UCLO's earlier identity). An index to numbers 1 through 79,
published between 1938 and 1989.
Reprints of Comm. ULO1 through 79
are available from the librarian at ULO.
Starting with issue number 80,
Comm. ULO was published only on the World Wide Web;

interest, and disposed of. Only items of direct relevance or
interest to the
Observatory were retained.
