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/

Federal Depository Library

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

Since Alaska-statehood (1959), this geographically-based series compiled data in a cumulative manner for catch, escapement, economic factors, and fishery management policies for each regional commercial fishery. The reports, prepared for the Board of Fisheries, were not widely distributed and ARLIS has the most complete collection in the state. The information is meant for a general audience and is often used by consultants and industry watchers to compare fisheries from one year to another. The reports are shelved by geographic region from east to west across Alaska and by year within geographic region.

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.
