Non-affiliated researchers must make an appointment to view aerial photographs per the Public Service Policy. Researchers should estimate how much time they expect to spend using the aerial photograph collection and bring the appropriate payment. Refunds will not be given for unused time. Payment is due before aerial photographs or indexes will be retrieved. Acceptable forms of payment are check or money order payable to the LSU Department of Geography & Anthropology. Cash will not be accepted. Checks returned for Non-Sufficient Funds will be submitted as evidence to the LSU Police Department.
