Alaska Resources Library & Information Services (ARLIS)

Following the Exxon Valdez oil spill, important information was generated in the process of cleanup efforts, damage assessment, and restoration activities. To preserve this information and make it accessible for future researchers, policy makers, and the public, the Trustee Council established the Oil Spill Public Information Center (OSPIC) in 1990. In 1995, OSPIC joined seven other natural resources libraries in consolidating their collections. In October 1997, Alaska Resources Library & Information Services (ARLIS) opened its doors.

ARLIS is home to the most comprehensive Alaska natural and cultural information resources collection of its kind. Thousands of publications are available through the ARLIS catalog at http://www.arlis.org/.

The EVOS collection at ARLIS contains materials representing diverse perspectives from state and federal agencies, universities, the private sector, the media, and the general public. Topics include the grounding of the tanker, oil spill response, cleanup, damage assessment, impacts to the environment, Trustee Council official record, and people, research, and restoration.

ARLIS provides access to books, reports, maps, photos, documentary films, video footage, and research data in print and digital formats, as well as works of poetry, novels, children’s books, a theatrical play, and a made-for-TV movie, all pertaining to EVOS.

This guide to ARLIS resources provides links to numerous full-text publications. Many more are available through the ARLIS catalog at http://www.arlis.org/. Most items are available for borrowing, although special collection items are for in-library use only. Print materials and media are loaned worldwide through interlibrary loan.
