Community Research Day Saturday 29 April 2023
The San Diego History Center is happy to welcome community researchers to our Special Collections!
- If you must cancel your spot, please let us know as soon as possible so we may designate your spot to someone on the waiting list.
- Community Research Days are meant to provide broad physical access to the Research Archives regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. A three-hour research period would normally cost $270. These sessions are available for a suggested $20 donation, which helps ensure the sustainability of the History Center to preserve the collections.
- Please note, patrons are required to wear masks while within the Research Archives, regardless of vaccination status.
