Library Collections: General Collection

Learn about the many collections housed at Rasmson Library.

General Collection

The general collection includes books, periodicals, serials, videos, scores, recorded music, electronic resources, and many other materials.

Generally, we do not purchase textbooks. We select resources that will best support the research and teaching needs of all UAF students, faculty and researchers. For information about collection development procedures for the general collection, see our Collection Development Policy.

Faculty and student input is critical to the strength of our collections. If you have concerns or questions, contact Genova Boyd.

The general collection is housed on levels 3-4 of Rasmuson Library:

  • Level 5 houses general collections A-Z including reference materials
  • Level 4 houses bestsellers and popular reading materials
  • Level 3 houses periodicals, atlases and gov docs

Assistant Professor of Library Science / Collection Development & Engagement Librarian
