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.


Welcome Back Faculty!

Rasmuson library would like to welcome new and returning faculty. If you're new to the library, or just need a quick refresher, take a look at our Faculty Guide to Rasmuson Library.

Some favorite library services for faculty include:

  • Reserves -- put readings and other material on reserve for your students.
  • Recommend a resource -- are we missing a book, journal, video? Let us know.
  • Class instruction -- we'll come to your class to teach students how effectively find credible information

Tell us what your favorite library service is on Facebook or by tweeting us @uaflibrary; or contact us the old school way by online form or email
