Alaska State Archives temporarily closed

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Beginning Monday and lasting through Aug. 25, the Alaska State Archives Research Room will be closed and research services limited to an emergency-only basis.

That is to allow for staff to transfer and process 13,000 boxes from two other facilities to the new state library, archives and museum vault.

The state department of education, in a release, said that staff will fulfill emergency requests for student transcripts and address urgent reference questions on a case-by-case basis.
