A librarian is available to provide in-class training in search tools and strategies, both face to face and on Collaborate. We are happy to tailor these presentations to the needs of your course.
Database orientations related to specific assignments tend to provide the best opportunities for students to learn to navigate the obstacles that tend to overwhelm them and bog down their search efforts. Additional topics might include peer-reviewed sources, a bibliographic citation manager such as RefWorks, why the use of university databases is most useful for university work, which databases are most appropriate for your course, and how to select and evaluate websites.
If you'd like to suggest a book or other item in your area of expertise for purchase for the Campus Library collections, which will benefit your students, please complete this form. Your input is greatly appreciated!
Use one of the computer workstations in the Campus Library or in the computer lab in the Paul Building. You can also bring in your own laptop and connect to the Internet wirelessly in any UAS Ketchikan building. Use your UAS username and password to connect. There is no charge for printing or making copies for adjuncts.
Upon receipt of a request, we will identify other libraries that own the items needed, ask to borrow them, and then notify borrowers when they are available. Interlibrary loan services are free to all faculty members and students, unless the loaning library charges the Campus Library.
