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.


Gifts of Library Materials

The UAF Libraries normally accept donations of books for our general collection. At the present time however, we are unable to do so due to staffing shortages. Donated books on or about Alaska will continue to be accepted. We thank you for your understanding.

Visit the Collection Development page for additional information. And thank you for thinking of us.

If you would like to donate items please contact Karen Jensen at (907) 474-6695,
