Can I still use Interlibrary Loan at UAF after I'm an alumni?

  • All current dues paying UAF alumni who live in the Fairbanks area may use the UAF ILL department.
  • Due to changes to our login system, you may not be able to log in to your previous ILLiad account. If that is the case, please contact the ILL office so that we can help you place requests. 
  • Alumni who live in Fairbanks can acquire a Noel Wien Public Library Card and use that to check out materials at the Rasmuson Library and to request interlibrary loans. You will need to visit us to change your record from your Polar Express card number to the Public Library card number. Alumni get 12 ILL requests a calendar year, as an added benefit of your paid alumni membership. The Noel Wien Public Library does offer ILL services to non-paying alumni, as well as to the general public.
