Publications - Sales

DGGS publications are available as free online downloads. You may purchase hardcopies or DVDs over the counter, or by phone, fax, or email from the DGGS Fairbanks office. DVD pricing is $10 per disk for as many files as will fit on the DVD plus $56 per hour for data processing for any staff time in excess of one hour (11 AAC 05.010).

For exceptionally large datasets and large quantity publications orders we also offer a hard drive file transfer. We offer two options: (1) DGGS will purchase a new hard drive of adequate size that you will be billed for upon delivery, OR (2) you may provide a new, unopened* (in original packaging, including shrinkwrap) adequately sized hard drive. You will be charged $56 per hour for data processing for any staff time in excess of one hour (11 AAC 05.010).

Fees for purchasing a hard drive of our entire collection of geophysical data are $112 (three hours processing time), plus the cost of the hard drive and applicable shipping.

* The State of Alaska IT security policy prohibits non-State resources from being connected to a State of Alaska network. Thus, only unused drives can be used.

For all orders please include: title and publication number.
