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.

Interlibrary Loan Department Standards Purchase Policy

Because it is often difficult to borrow standards from other libraries, the Rasmuson Library can order standards for students, staff or faculty for addition to the library’s collection. However, we have a limited budget for print standards. Students, staff and faculty are limited to ordering a maximum total purchase price of $500 per academic year, per person. The student, staff, or faculty member understands that submission of a request does not guarantee purchase.

Students, staff and faculty also should be made aware that the Library subscribes to the ASTM database, which provides PDF files of current ASTM standards for their use. -7/26/10
