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.

Calling UAF Book Authors

Chancellor Rogers and Rasmuson Library would like to recognize and honor all the faculty and staff authors who have published books between March 1, 2010 and March 1, 2011.

If you are an author, or know of an author, please contact Rasmuson Library's Office of the Dean at 907-474-7224 or

As a point of clarification, journal articles, chapters, or essays within a book do not fit the criteria; it is necessary to focus on larger works for manageability, though the author we recognize may be an editor rather than the writer of the entire text.
