Location: first row in Special Collections
ARLIS is typically the library of choice for government agencies and project managers to house documents that require public notice and review.
Items received for public review from state or federal agencies or other organizations are placed immediately on the Public Review Document shelves with minimal processing to provide ready public access.
These items are not in the catalog and are not available for checkout. Items are shelved by geographic location and there is an index available on the shelf and as a PDF.
After the public comment period, items are returned to the donor or added to the collection according to donor preference. Some items in this section are actually mini-collections available on a long-term basis. Others may be available in digital format.
Public Review Documents are accessible whenever the library building is open to the public, including evenings and weekends.
