Furs, Skulls & Bird Mounts

A popular collection at birds-furs-skullsARLIS is its large selection of Alaskan animal furs, skulls, and bird mounts, available for check-out by any walk-in patron (ARLIS will not mail them due to their fragility).  The collection is frequently used by teachers and other educators, camp counselors, artists, and scout groups.  Most of the items were donated to ARLIS by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Wildlife Conservation Division. See also, Kits, for more hands-on items for the classroom. Links to collection guides are available at www.arlis.org/resources/for-educators/furs-skulls-bird-mounts/

Circulation will resume in the fall semester of 2018.

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.
