Furs, Skulls, Bird & Fish Mounts

Furs, Skulls, Bird Mounts & Fish Mounts are made available at ARLIS by the Alaska Dept. Fish & Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and private donors. Most items may be checked out from ARLIS for a 2-week period and may be renewed once for an additional two weeks. An inventory is available for download.

Also available for download is a 34-page guide for the circulating bird and fish mounts. For each specimen, the guide includes a photograph, including a ruler to show the size of the specimen, and the size of the box in which the specimen is circulated.

These items are available on a first-come/first-served basis. Please check the catalog for availability by doing a keyword search using the name of the animal or bird exactly as it appears in the list. If the search produces too many hits, add keyword “realia”.

ARLIS is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but furs, mounts and skulls may be checked out until 4:45 p.m. Items must be returned to ARLIS during open hours. If you need assistance, please contact the ARLIS reference desk at 27-ARLIS (272-7547) or reference@arlis.org.
