Access to rare books and maps is at the discretion of our Rare Book Curator, Kathy Arndt. You’ll need to contact her (firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-474-6671) to gain access to the original materials. It is not always possible to view the originals.
All of our Rare Maps have been scanned and are available for viewing on Alaska’s Digital Archives. The majority of our Rare Books are available on microfiche in the public area of level 2 in the library, just look for the metal filing cabinets that say “Rare Book Collection.”
