Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS)

What is ARLIS?

Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS) is a publically-accessible library which serves nine federal and state agencies, including Alaska Department of Fish and Game. ARLIS has the largest library collection of ADF&G publications in the state and is able to help with most ADF&G publication requests. Most ARLIS items may be checked out by the Alaskan public with a valid borrower card. Others may use interlibrary loan to borrow ARLIS items through their local library.

For more information about specific services available to the public, see the ARLIS public services page.
