The immensely rich primary sources collected in Special Collections and University Archives can enrich and enliven almost any subject.  We believe that these materials are here to be used, in any way that can further the education mission of San Diego State University.

While in our reading room, visitors make their own duplications using our self-service BookEye scanner. Researchers who are unable to visit the reading room can sometimes order duplications.
