Frequently Asked Questions

Can I access my records if I donate them to SFU Archives?

Yes, you can always access your records after you donate them to SFU Archives. You may do so by visiting our Reading Room. Once records are donated to SFU Archives, we do not allow them to circulate outside our premises in order to protect their authenticity. Restricting access to our Reading Room helps to ensure records are not inadvertently or maliciously altered after their deposit with us.

Due to limited resources, we cannot offer free copying or research services to donors.
