Resource Information Center (RIC) Library

Welcome to Alaska Housing’s Resource Information Center (RIC). The RIC is a resource and information center that maintains materials on residential and commercial buildings for individuals with skills and abilities of all levels. It doesn’t matter if you rent or own, an apartment, condo, house or a commercial building. We have information for individuals, students, professional builders, building mangers or building maintenance staff. The RIC has information on remodeling, energy efficiency, the environment, sustainability, building components, renewables, building codes, commercial building, building monitoring, Alaska Statutes and much more.
