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/

Please note: Due to construction during the summer of 2018,

this collection will not circulate after Friday, April 27, 2018.

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.

In 2007 the Bureau of Land Management closed the John Rishel Mineral Information Center (JRMIC), on Mayflower Island in Douglas, Alaska, and transferred many of its printed and electronic collections to the Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS). In order to restore access to the digitized reports–mostly PDF files–from JRMIC, ARLIS posted several hundred html pages from the 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.
