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!

Research about Alaska abounds at UAA – from salmon industry trends to …

natural gas pipeline policy to Alaska’s teacher turnover, supply and demand.  The Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) offers free access to Alaskan social and economic research online for students and community to explore.  Search ISER Publications, or check out the Center for Alaska Education Policy Research (CAEPR).  At CAEPR’s page, you can find a link to the publication, “Alaska Teacher Turnover, Supply and Demand:  2013 Highlights.”  If your area of interest is in the area of crime statistics, policing or victimization, check out UAA’s Justice Center’s Research.  For information about other Alaskan topics, please ask a librarian (786-1848)! We are here to help!
