ARLIS is New Hosting Agency for Digital and Print Collections from the John Rishel Mineral Information Center
In 2007, the John Rishel Mineral Information Center (JRMIC) closed. JRMIC was located on Mayflower Island in Douglas, Alaska. The Bureau of Land Management transferred many of the printed and electronic collections housed at the JRMIC to the Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS).
Questions about the Mineral Assessment Program, Mineral Assessment Studies files, Mineral Availability System, Alaskan publications of the former U.S. Bureau of Mines, and other subjects related to the JRMIC should be directed to the ARLIS reference desk: email@example.com, 907 27-ARLIS (272-7547).
To restore access to the digitized reports–mostly PDF files–from JRMIC, ARLIS posted several hundred pages from the former JRMIC website with minimal editing. Some of the former JRMIC pages still retain logos and links related to JRMIC. Replacement with ARLIS information is pending. Removal of the JRMIC logos and links will occur as time permits.
The ARLIS Management Team acknowledges the role of the Bureau of Land Management, and the former librarians of the John Rishel Mineral Information Center, in making these collections available through ARLIS.
