Is the library open yet?

You may have heard the governor is easing restrictions, and Anchorage is slowly starting to open back up. Libraries across the state are looking at how they can safely reopen. But what does this mean on the UAA campus?

Currently the UAA campus is still in Phase A, the most restrictive phase. Students and staff can still enter the library from the north and south entrances (the entrance from the Social Sciences Building is still closed). Wolf cards must be swiped at the doors for entrance. Social distancing practices are in place and staff are working hard to keep the building clean and safe for those using the library.

The library is still physically closed to the public, however our reference team can still help the public with certain research questions as needed.

Reference librarians can be reached via email, phone, online chat, and text Monday through Thursday 10 am to 7 pm, Friday 10 am to 5 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1 to 5 pm.  For our contact information, or to make an appointment, visit .
