Library Survey Results

We are happy to share the results of our latest Library Survey, completed in February 2022.
For the first time, the UAA/APU Consortium Library undertook our own, unique survey,
customized to meet our local needs, and analyzed in-house, by the Consortium Library
Assessment Team.
Follow the link to find a summary report, Qualtrics reports for each user group surveyed, and
coded comments.
This survey was based on the University of Washington’s Triennial Survey.

Improved Wifi in the Consortium Library

We have made some great changes to the wireless network in the library. “APU Wifi – Anchorage” is now available for APU users. Also, the UAA Wifi “UAA Wifi – Guest” is much faster than it was before. Both the APU and guest networks require a self registration process for first time users.
For a description of each network and how to connect to
them, go to the page: Computers, Laptops, Internet Access & Wireless

American Antiquarian Society (AAS) Historical Periodicals Collection—a digital collection of American magazines, newspapers, and journals published 1684 – 1912that documents American life from the Colonial Era through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Subjects include the history of slavery, European views of the Americas, politics, religious issues, science, culture and the arts, health, women’s issues, industry and professions, education, advertising, and more. Contains illustrations, letters, excerpts of speeches.

The Anchorage Times—full-text content of local and regional news from 1970 – 1992. Gaps in coverage are being filled in over time, with the entire newspaper from 1915 – 1992 available eventually.

Now, add in additional E journal and E book titles from Masterfile and even more titles covering science and engineering.
