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.


Notecards for Holiday Gifts!

If you find yourself challenged for gift ideas this Holiday Season, why not consider our fabulous notecard selection. You can purchase these notecards in person at the library (stop by room 334) or online through the Alaska History Store.

The price is only $3.00 each. Alternatively, you can get a custom-printed box of 6 cards, which are packaged in elegant white boxes with clear covers, for $19.00.

Or, the best idea of all - treat yourself!
