Federal Depository Library

Federal Depository Library ProgramARLIS selects federal depository items and provides free public access.

Items received for public review from state or federal agencies or other organizations are placed immediately on the Public Review Document shelves with minimal processing to provide ready public access. These items are not in the catalog and are not available for checkout. Items are shelved by geographic location or project name. An index is available on the shelf and as a download. After the public comment period, items are returned to the donor or added to the collection according to the donor’s preference. Some items in this section are actually mini-collections available on a long-term basis. Some may be available in digital format.

Public Review Documents are accessible whenever the building is open to the public, including some weekends and evenings in addition to normal weekday hours.

The shelf index to Public Review Documents is also available for download.

Collection Highlights

MAS Files (Mineral Availability System/Mineral Assessment Studies)

The Minerals Availability System (MAS) was a US Bureau of Mines program begun in the early 1960’s to measure and classify identified mineral resources according to their extraction technologies, economics and commercial availability. The files contain information on occurrences, deposits, mines and processing facilities. When the US Bureau of Mines was closed in 1996, the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was given responsibility for the Alaska MAS files located in Juneau and Anchorage. Those files in BLM are known as AMIS, Alaska Minerals Information System. The MAS files are arranged numerically by quadrangle number and indexed by quadrangle and property.
