See our Library Services Updates page for information about changes to Rasmuson Library Services.

UAF students, staff, and faculty can now enter the library to pick out or to return their own materials, accessing the library by PolarExpress card.

Public library patrons can again place holds on our materials through the public library's catalog. Items can be picked up at the Noel Wien Library or the North Pole Branch.

University patrons who are reluctant to enter the library can still check materials out by appointment. Set an appointment to pick up items.

Visit the UA coronavirus information website to learn how the University of Alaska is responding to the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 situation and find links to communications, policy guidance and resources.


Course-Related Instruction Request Form

Course-related instruction sessions offer hands-on instruction on resources and search strategies appropriate to a particular discipline and/or class project or assignment. Classes usually meet in the Rasmuson Library computer lab (Room 301), however we can also come to your classroom.

Faculty/Instructors/TAs may email Ilana Kingsley at or use this form to schedule class visits.

When planning your request please consider the following suggestions:

  • Two weeks advance notice is greatly appreciated. The sooner you call the more likely we can accommodate your schedule and have adequate preparation time for your class.
  • Library faculty will customize the presentation to fit the needs of your students if you outline the particular subjects, materials, and online resources you wish to have covered. Please provide relevant information that will assist the librarian preparing to teach your class.
