Welcome Faculty

Faculty Library Cards

UAS faculty members receive an extended loan period of 120 days (1 semester) for Egan Library books. Items may be borrowed from any library in the Joint Library Consortium (alternate checkout periods may apply) and may be returned to any participating library regardless of where the item was borrowed.  UAS Faculty can have their Whalecard set up as their library card (requires latest version with scanable barcode/uaid# on back, replacement Whalecards are $10 at Student Accounts).   Faculty must have a current library account in good standing to offer Course Reserves for materials.  Faculty borrowing privileges may also be extended to visiting faculty from other UA campuses (ie UAF SFOS @ Lena Point) and to US Forest Service staff or ACRC cooperating partners (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, the U.S. Forest Service Alaska Region) with valid school/government issued ID.

The Foundation Directory Grants Database is available at the Juneau Public Library (Downtown).

Course reserves information

Consult our reserves policy information (PDF: 15KB) and fill out a request form (PDF: 18KB).  Use of Course Reserves require Faculty to have an active library account.  

We want you to be successful in your teaching and academic pursuits, and we want your students to be successful.  If there is a service not mentioned on this page that you'd like to see, please make a suggestion.
