Library and archives temporarily closed
October 23, 2008
The Anchorage Museum’s library and archives will be closed Jan. 1 through May 30, 2009.
During that time, the library and archives will be prepared for relocation to the museum’s new expansion building, which is slated to open May 30, 2009. Upon re-opening, the museum’s library and archives will be known as the Atwood Resource Center.
In the meantime, historical photos and information can be found online through the Alaska Virtual Library and Digital Archives: http://vilda.alaska.edu/index.php.
Researchers also may consult resources and staff at Loussac Library; University of Alaska Anchorage’s Archives and Special Collections Department; Alaska State Library, Juneau; and University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Alaska and Polar Regions Department.
