Library News and Announcements

Holds have restarted!  UA students, faculty, and staff can once again place holds on items from libraries around the state and have them delivered to the Mat-Su College Library.  You can also have our material delivered to another library.  Please keep in mind that libraries have quarantine periods on incoming material, so delivery times will be slower than they were in the past.

The Library is open to UA students, faculty, and staff.  Face masks are required.  Please practice social distancing.  Circulation and Interlibrary Loan are open.  Study areas are open, but seating is reduced.  

To our public patrons:  We have had to suspend holds and close to the general public.  We apologize for the inconvenience, and ask for your understanding.  We look forward to being able to serve you again as soon as we possibly can.

For Sale:  Items withdrawn from the library's collection are available for sale for $2.00/each.  See a library staff member for details.  We also have Princeton files available for $2.00.  They are very handy for organizing magazines or similar items.
