Alaska Historical Society
The Alaska Historical Society (AHS) is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to the promotion of Alaska history by the exchange of ideas and information, the preservation and interpretation of resources, and the education of Alaskans about their heritage.
University of the Arctic (UArctic)
The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a network of universities, colleges, research institutes, and other organizations concerned with education and research in and about the North. UArctic builds and strengthens collective resources and infrastructures that enable member institutions to better serve their constituents and their regions.
University of Alaska Museum of the North
UAMN holds over 2.5 million artifacts and specimens that represent millions of years of biological diversity and thousands of years of cultural traditions in the North. The collections are organized into ten disciplines (archaeology, birds, documentary film, earth sciences, ethnology and history, fine arts, fishes and marine invertebrates, insects, mammals, and plants) and serve as a valuable resource for research on climate change, genetics, contaminants, and other issues facing Alaska and the circumpolar North.
The museum is also the premier repository for artifacts and specimens collected on public lands in Alaska and is a leader in Northern natural and cultural history research. These collections form the foundation for the museum’s research, education programs, and exhibits. They are accessible to students on the UAF campus and remotely through the online collection management system, Arctos. All University of Alaska students receive free admission to the museum and are encouraged to consider using the collections as part of their academic work at UAF.
