Ordering and Using our Photographs & Archival Material

Photo orders are being processed on a case by case basis. There maybe a delay due to limited staffing and access to collections. Thank you for your patience.

NOTE: This information only applies to photographs owned by the Archives at the University of Alaska Fairbanks [Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives, Elmer E. Rasmuson Library]. In Alaska's Digital Archives, these materials are identified with the letters UAF on the identification line. This is also the accession number.

Orders for Archival materials must be placed with staff at the Alaska Polar Regions Collections & Archives.

To begin your photo order:

  1. Email the Statement of Intended Use Agreement form (PDF | DOC) to UAF-APR-reference-Service@alaska.edu; we will contact you to collect payment.

The Archives reserves the right to charge reasonable fees for the reproduction and use of Archives materials as well as for projects requiring staff activity beyond the normal scope of duties. Payment is required at the time the service is rendered (we accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express).
