Faculty and students at the Department of Anthropology are able to utilize a wide variety of research facilities on the UAF campus.

The Elmer E. Rasmuson Library contains the distinguished Alaska Polar Regions Collection, as well as an outstanding rare book and map collection. Primary sources and photographic collections on the Circumpolar North are also available in the Archive and Manuscript Division of the library.
The Alaska Native Language Center offers unrivaled opportunities for the study of Alaskan languages, and provides important support for instruction and research in sociocultural anthropology.
The Alaska Quaternary Center focuses on the natural history of Alaska from the beginning of the Pleistocene through the Holocene.
The UAF Stable Isotope Facility is an excellent resource for bioanthropology and archaeology students interested in using advanced lab methods for their research. Student and faculty researchers alike may use our own chemical bioarchaeology lab for preparation of materials before submitting samples for analysis.
