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 use their Whale Card as their library card (requires latest version with scan-able barcode/UA ID# on back, replacement Whale Cards 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 staff from ACRC cooperating partner agencies (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, the U.S. Forest Service Alaska Region) with valid school/government issued ID.

Highlighted Research Guides

We have a growing number of online research guides to help students, faculty, and staff make the best use of library resources and services. Faculty may be particularly interested in the following guides:

E-books for the Classroom

Egan Library will buy electronic versions of key texts and supplemental readings to support your classes if they are available.  We believe that these purchased e-Books can help to reduce costs for students and increase access to recommended or required readings for a course.  Once purchased, UAS has perpetual rights to the e-Book and it remains within our online collection. We make every attempt to purchase e-Books with unlimited access. However, if a limited number of users is our only option for an e-Book, we will consult with you prior to purchase.   This is one way UAS Faculty can address the problem with textbooks and increase students access to learning materials (and no waiting for books to arrive).    

Simply fill out a request form and we’ll do the rest!
