More about the Susitna Doc Finder

About the Susitna Doc Finder

The Susitna Doc Finder is a comprehensive catalog of documents that have resulted from every phase of the historic 1980s Susitna Hydroelectric Project (SuHydro Project), as well as those documents continually being produced since 2010 under the current Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project (SuWa Project).

The catalog is powered by VuFind and features:

  • Maximal searchability
  • Mobile-friendly usage on devices of all sizes and shapes
  • Automatic display of cover images of all PDFs
  • Indexing of full text of all PDFs
  • Relevancy-ranked search results

SuHydro Project Reports

ARLIS maintains the most extensive collection of historic Susitna Hydroelectric Project publications found anywhere. The Susitna Hydroelectric Project, costing an estimated $227 million in research during the 1970s and 1980s, produced a body of work exceeding 5,000 reports. ARLIS continually strives to discover more documents to amass the most complete collection possible.

Three large series of SuHydro Project reports are represented in the Susitna Doc Finder, as follows:

APA Reports: These were compiled, indexed, and numbered by the Alaska Power Authority (APA). These are comprised of agency reports, contracted reports, and books, articles, and excerpts that contain information relevant to the historic project.

The title of the APA finding aid is Susitna Hydroelectric Project Document Index.

RTS Reports: Aquatic Studies, conducted by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, received RTS report numbers. There are several finding aids for these.

The title of the RTS finding aid is Susitna River Aquatic Studies: Divisions of Sport and Commercial Fisheries.

SUS Reports: These reports were compiled and numbered by Arctic Environmental Information and Data Center (AEIDC) in fulfilment of an aquatic impact study project.

The title of the SUS finding aid is Susitna Aquatic Impact Assessment Project Bibliography.

SuWa Project Reports


SuWa Reports:
These reports are mainly produced by agencies and contractors associated with the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project (SuWa Project). ARLIS has systematically assigned SuWa numbers and included uniform cover pages for each SuWa report.

ARLIS’s Role

Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS) has been under contract to the Alaska Energy Authority since 2009 to maintain and augment these collections in support of the present day Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project. ARLIS has digitized all available SuHydro reports. SuWa reports are born digital and ARLIS has created a permanent paper repository of all SuWa reports.

More of these reports are being discovered as the project continues to develop, and additional scanning and linking is occurring. Donations of SuHydro collections (small and large) are always welcome.

Collection Highlight

Hidden Collections Guide

A Guide to uncataloged and other collections at ARLIS is now available as an online LibGuide.  An older  pdf download is still available.  ARLIS is the “mother lode of Alaska Resources Information”, but not all of the materials in the library have been cataloged, due to limited funding and staff time. The collections described in this guide are available for use with finding aids and assistance from the ARLIS staff.
