DBAA: University of Alaska Databases (Need More)

We conclude our look at publicly searchable databases produced by Alaska state agencies with this list of four databases listed under the University of Alaska section of the the Alaska page of the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States Project.

  • AEIC Earthquake Database Search – Database from the Alaska Earthquake Information Center that contains earthquake locations from 01/1898 through 10/31/2011. Database is searchable by date, magnitude, location (latitude/longitude) and earthquake depth.
  • Alaska K-12 Science Curricular Initiative (AKSCI) – Searchable database of Alaska tailored science lessons. Use the “advanced” search tab to search by Alaska Grade Level Expectation Category, Grade Level, Lesson Title, or by Keyword. Can also browse lesson plans.
  • Alaska & Polar Periodical Index – Index to journals, magazines and newsletters relating to Alaska and the Earth’s polar regions. Coverage goes back decades. Results show availability in University of Alaska Fairbanks Rassmuson Library, but many articles are available elsewhere or through interlibrary loan.
  • Hubert Wenger Eskimo Database Database of approximately 200 books and journal articles relating to first or early European contact with Alaska’s Native peoples. Basic search allows one to search by keyword, Alaska Native group, author and publication date.

I feel confident there are many more publicly searchable databases produced by the University of Alaska that are not represented here. If you are aware of any, please let me know as  I’m still very much engaged in keeping the Alaska databases page up to date.

To get a sense of the databases produced by other state supported university systems, go to the main state agency databases project page and try searching “university of” and click on the results from state pages.
