What the Library can do for students!

The Library is still open to students with a valid UA or APU ID. If you don’t have a UAA ID, we can help you get one, for more information see the COVID-19 update page. The library hours have changed and there are two sets of hours now: building hours and online research assistance hours. Both are on the Library Services Update page.

We have laptops along with earbuds available for use within the building for attending classes, and we have laptops that can be checked out to take home. These are available at the Main Circulation Desk. The Library can provide Document Delivery services for some materials, and students can check-out books from the Library.

For research help from a Librarian, use the Library’s Ask Us service on the library website. The Consortium Library has moved to online Information and Research Services. All the virtual ways to contact us still exist, but we do not have librarians at the first floor Research Help Desk. On the Library’s website is an Ask Us link which provides access to librarians via chat, email, texting, and online appointments.

Please contact Archives and Special Collections directly if you have need of their collections or research services.

The Library has a page within University of Alaska’s Blackboard  to make library access easier. There is also a Library link within your course in Blackboard and there are resources on this Guides page on our website. These pages are designed to provide more direct access to relevant Library resources. For many more resources use QuickSearch on our main page or the databases, including our ebook collections. The Library is available on the the APU website as well.

If you need any assistance finding information or research, please don’t hesitate to contact the Virtual Reference Desk. Or you may contact the subject librarian for your program for research help. They can meet with you via online means such as Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc. Use this link to make an appointment .

Let us know how we can help!

Information About Where to Vote

If you’re wondering whether you’re registered or where to vote. There is a website where you can look up this information.

To check your polling place and voter registration status, go to the My Voter Information site: https://myvoterinformation.alaska.gov/

The Voter Information Project has a page that you can put your address in and figure out polling locations and hours of polling, as well as see your location on a map. Via the map you can click on an arrow and get directions from your home to the polling place.

All Alaskans from any district can vote on the University of Alaska Anchorage campus at the Student Union on Monday 11/5, 8am to 5pm, and Tuesday 11/6, 7am to 8pm.

Remember that Governor Walker has withdrawn from the race, but polling workers are not allowed to share that information because it is considered electioneering. The Anchorage Daily News has a story explaining this. You can find the Anchorage Daily News in the Consortium Library’s resources. There is a fully digital version available via our database subscriptions.
