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.

Mary Louise Milligan Rasmuson 1911 - 2012

We are sad to note the passing of one of Alaska's great pioneers and philanthropists, Mary Louise Milligan Rasmuson. She and her husband, Elmer E. Rasmuson, made possible many wonderful projects and programs at his namesake library. We are grateful for their vision and generosity and for the legacy they have left to future generations.
