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.


Check-outs Open to Public Library Patrons

Rasmuson Library is now checking materials out by appointment to public library users who are not currently affiliated with UAF. Patrons must have an account with a public library participating in the Alaska Library Catalog (which includes FNSB libraries).

Step 1: Check the library catalog to verify that UAF libraries own the items you're looking for.

Step 2: Request the material(s) online and make an appointment for pick-up.
Allow us 24 hours' notice so that we can pull your items and confirm your appointment time.

Step 3: Pick up your material(s). When you come to pick up your items, you will need to show your public library card AND a photo ID.
