Hilton M. Briggs Library Policies

Archives and Special Collections - Reproduction Charges

These proposed Archives and Special Collections fees bring us in line with similar institutions and continue to give SDSU affiliated researchers a price break. The pricing also considers the shift from photocopying and mailing hard copies to researchers to creating digital pdfs and e-mailing digital copies.

Note: Additional fees may be assessed for any service at the discretion of the Archivist.
