University of Alaska Anchorage
The first time I went out on the ice during whaling season in Barrow was in the spring of 1973. I’d barely been there for six months and, as a recently transplanted New Yorker, was blissfully ignorant of any danger that didn’t involve derelicts with squeegees.
I just got back from Australia. Okay, not really. Actually, I was in the UAA / APU Consortium Library, the building that looks like a gigantic bakery muffin, particularly when there’s snow on the ground. Warm, earthy oranges and reds draw the visitor in; the walls curve, ending at a spectacular wall of glass rising three stories.
Good things come to those who wait. In June 2005, Rasmuson Foundation awarded $250,000 to University of Alaska Anchorage‘s LitSite Alaska to support a site redesign and content upgrade that could significantly change the way people access and experience Alaska history.
