Fee-for-Access Searches

Approved by the ARLIS Founders Board on June 18, 2003


ARLIS reference staff performs searches in fee-for-access database services, such as Dialog and LexisNexis, as a service to its founding agency patrons.  Search costs are kept to a reasonable amount as defined by the ARLIS management team.  Separate accounts may be established to accommodate requests for more extensive and, therefore, more expensive searches.


ARLIS may conduct searches in fee-for-access database services at the reference librarian’s discretion, as a courtesy to other libraries, staff of non-founding agencies, consultants, or members of the general public.  These searches will generally be brief and inexpensive.
