Publication Sales

DGGS publications are available as free online downloads. You may purchase hardcopies or flash drives over the counter, or by phone, fax, or email from the DGGS Fairbanks office. Flash drive pricing is $10 each 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 beused.

For all orders please include: title and publication number.

Hardcopy pricing varies and is based on the cost of production and the distribution media. The standard charge is $.10 per page for 8-1/2" x 11" pages; $13.00 per sheet for items up to 3ft. x 4ft.

If you do not see a price listed in our catalog, please contact us to determine availability.
