ANILCA primary source collections

This guide consists of collections of primary source material held by Alaskan archives, libraries, and museums which relate to the passage and implementation of ANILCA in Alaska. This guide is an overview of collections containing significant amounts of material relating to this topic held by Alaskan institutions and is not meant to be comprehensive or include every collection containing material related to the topic. Collections are listed by the holding institution. To access these, click on the name of the institution in the left hand column.

Click on the linked collection names for more detailed descriptions of the collections. Not every collection listed has a description online. For more information about a collection, please contact the institution that owns the collection.

Many archives, museums, libraries, and government agencies in and outside of Alaska hold additional information and documentation regarding ANILCA. You may wish to consult with a local library for assistance in finding additional resources such as records related to the passage of the Act in Congress. In addition, Section (d)(2) of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act is closely related to ANILCA. For additional resources on ANCSA, see the Guide to Sources for the Study of the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act: Volume 1 History and Archival Collections.

If you represent an institution that holds publicly available primary source material related to ANILCA and you would like to see it included in this guide, please contact the UAA/APU Consortium Library Archives and Special Collections.
