Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto
CAUP's library contains over 1100 volumes covering most fields of modern Astronomy. Overs 500 text books (graduate and postgraduate level), 150 MSc. and Ph.D. Theses, proceedings of International Conferences (NATO ASI, IUE, ESO, ESA, IAU, ...), Catalogues, Manuals, etc.

As a recent library, the priority is the acquisition of books published during the last five years or so.
