Today, in honor of Veteran’s Day, 11/11, I want to highlight sources for veterans at UAA.

The UAA Military & Veteran Community Resources website is a great place to start!  The website address is http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/veterans/ .

Veteran Financial Assistance can be found at http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/financialaid/Veterans/index.cfm

Plus, there is a page of Local Resources for UAA Student Veterans and Active Duty Military Students.   This website url is http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/financialaid/Veterans/veterans_local_resources.cfm

Also, I want to let you know that there is a database of more than 330 military journals and magazines in the Military & Government Collection.  Students can access this from the Consortium Library’s website, by going to www.consortiumlibrary.org, selecting Databases, and typing the word military to search for the database.  Select the Military & Government Collection.  To access articles, students can log on with UAA or APU user name and password.  Alaskans who are not UAA or APU students can also access this database by searching for “sled Alaska,” on the Internet, and going into the Digital Pipeline to find the Military & Government Collection.  Questions?  Ask a Librarian         (786-1848)!

I’m sending out a big thank you to those of you who have served, and are serving in the military!  Our thanks, thoughts, and support are with you. ~ Best wishes from Deb the Librarian!

UAA Masters in Social Work graduate, and Clinician for the Center for Human Development and Center for Psychosocial Development, Summer Lefebvre, has been involved in researching and helping homeless residents of Anchorage.  On this edition of Informania, she discusses the Alaska Mental Health Consumer Web (AMHC), an organization that helps homeless people in Anchorage find the help that they need to recover from mental health and addiction challenges, and to pursue a productive, stable life.

In addition to working as a clinician at AMHC, Summer has also been involved with city-wide efforts to research, identify  and help the most vulnerable homeless people (those with cancer, or the elderly), and is helping to plan and promote the January 2013 Project Homeless Connect.  Sponsored by the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness, Project Homeless Connect will bring together multiple resources and services for homeless citizens in one location so that they can get the help that they need during the cold of winter!  Watch this Project Connect video to learn more.  Volunteers are needed!
