How do I search for Rasmuson Library’s materials on Alaska’s Digital Archives?

Because of the large number of institutions contributing, when you're searching Alaska's Digital Archives and you find something you like, you'll want to pay attention to which library, archives, or museum the image is from. That information, along with contact information for that institution, is included in the description below the image (look for "Holding Institution").

Each archives and library has their own regulations for using their collections and you'll want to contact them directly to find out what they are.

Additionally, you can limit your search to only the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library collections (or also the collections at the UAF Museum of the North) by choosing “Advanced Search” to the right of the search bar, clicking on “Add or remove collections”, and then checking the boxes for “University of Alaska Fairbanks” (and/or “University of Alaska Museum of the North”) on the menu.
