Donate Materials to ARLIS

Types of Donations that ARLIS Accepts

ARLIS attempts to have a comprehensive collection pertaining to Alaska natural and cultural resources. ARLIS welcomes all additions to its collection that fall within the scope of its collection development policy. Welcome are reports, documents, audio-visual materials, and other bibliographic work products that broadly apply to Alaska natural and cultural resources. The documents may be produced or distributed by public or private sector agencies, ARLIS founders, non-founder Alaska government agencies, and contractors. We also accept relevant books that meet collection development guidelines.

If you would like to donate materials to ARLIS, please email or call 907-786-7651.
