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.


Interlibrary Loan: ILLiad is Moving to Single Sign-On

On August 14, ILLiad will switch to using UA username and password to log on and place requests through ILLiad. Patrons who have current ILLiad accounts will not lose their request history or any current requests - all requests will be moved to the new accounts.

Rasmuson Library Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff hope that this will make using ILLiad more convenient and easier to use. Questions, comments, and concerns can be sent to us via phone at 907-474-6069 or via email at
