On the Library Catalogs page of the Egan Library website click on Juneau Library System Catalog.
Or click here to go directly to the CCLIC catalog.
The library catalog provides access to an online database for materials (books, videos, CDs, DVDs, videos, audiocassettes, magazines, newspapers, journals, microfilm, and more) in Egan Library as well as in the Alaska State Library, Juneau public libraries, and Juneau-Douglas High School library.
A single library card enables users to borrow materials from any of these libraries and have them delivered to the most convenient location in Juneau. Out of town (distance users) may identify materials in the library catalog and request them through the ILLiad system.
Reserve Materials are located at the Circulation Desk and may be checked out using your library card for periods of time determined by the course instructor. To search for reserve materials by title, instructor name, or the course number, go to the library catalog and click on UAS Reserve Desk in the upper right corner of the catalog’s opening screen.
If you are a distance student and need help with reserve materials, please contact the Outreach Services Librarian email@example.com

Create an account with ILLiad, the Egan Library Interlibrary Loan system. Here you can order materials that are unavailable in the Juneau library system. Our Interlibrary Loan specialist will locate the book, article, or other material you need from the closest library that has it and deliver the material to you (free of charge).
Keep in mind that most databases are accessible using your UAS username and password. You may look up your UAS username and password using ELMO (Easy Login Maintenance Option). If you have difficulty with this process, try contacting the Help Desk 796-6400 (local) or 1-877-465-6400 (toll-free) or email email@example.com

A very few databases require a special username and password that we cannot publish publicly. We will be happy to help you gain access to any library database.
Database licenses restrict access to faculty, students, and staff who are currently affiliated with UAS as well as members of the public who use Egan Library’s computers.
Egan Library’s service schedule varies according to academic needs and is determined by
- continual tracking of actual library usage
- evaluating student requests for additional hours
The result is that library hours are reduced during slow periods in the year and expanded during particularly busy times, such as weekends near the end of semester and finals week. This allows the library to respond to the highest demand for services while balancing these needs against our fiscal and staff resource limitations. Library service hours have steadily increased over the years to include earlier opening and longer weekend hours.

The laptop computers have software installed for you to do class projects (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel) and they have a wireless Internet connection and the ability to print to library printers.
