About the Alaska's Digital Archives project: The Alaska's Digital Archives project is a collaborative effort initiated by the Alaska State Library's Historical Collections in Juneau, Archives and Special Collections at the UAA-APU Consortium Library in Anchorage, and the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections at the UAF Rasmuson Library in Fairbanks. Several other archives, museums and libraries in Alaska have also joined the project. The goal of the project is to support the instructional and research needs of Alaskans and others interested in Alaska history and culture. Materials include photographic images, documents, maps, oral histories, and moving image footage. The Digital Archives contains representative samples of some collections in Archives holdings. We are adding materials regularly, so be sure to search the site frequently for new additions.
Using/ordering materials: If you have found materials on the Alaska's Digital Archives site and are interested in obtaining copies or using them for any purpose, you will need to contact Archives & Special Collections for citation requirements, permission and information on costs and availability. Please include: 1) the item identifier number or numbers, 2) how you intend to use the image or document, and 3) the type of duplicate you need. If you are seeking a scan, please provide the file type and resolution you require. If you are seeking a print copy, please provide the dimensions. Archives employees will be happy to assist you with your request, calculate costs, and determine which forms you will need to complete.
We are pleased to be able to participate in the Alaska's Digital Archives project and hope that it will prove useful for your research.
