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.

eBook Academic Collection Trial

We're running a trial of eBook Academic Collection (by EBSCO) until Jan. 31, 2019.

The eBook Academic Collection collection contains a large selection of multidisciplinary e-books representing a broad range of academic subjects.

We'd like to know what you think!  Especially in comparison to Ebook Central (by ProQuest).

If you have a moment, please take a look at eBook Academic Collection and Ebook Central and let us know which one you prefer and why.

Questions? Contact Karen Jensen at or 907-474-6695.
