30. Is there a library at McMurdo? Do you have to bring your own or what do you use for reference?
We have a couple of libraries on base. There is a regular library with pleasure reading books, guide books and reference books. It is staffed by volunteers. Books can be checked out just like they would be in your neighborhood library. There is a budget every year to add new books to the collection. They have over 8,000 books available for free checkout!
There is also a science library in the Crary building. Crary is the science building where all of the scientists have their office. It has a telescope and the best view of the sound!
In medical, we have a small collection of reference books. I have not yet used these books. I brought down a Netter atlas of Ortho anatomy and a general medicine reference book. I do have a subscription to an online medical reference library called UpToDate. That is where I get most of my medical information.
