South Coastal Information Center (SCIC)
Due to COVID-19 and per SDSU campus safety guidelines,
we are temporarily closed for in-house appointments.
The SCIC is the primary repository for archaeological site records and reports for San Diego and Imperial counties in Southern California. We currently house approximately 40,000 cultural resource records documenting historical and archaeological sites and approximately 15,000 investigation reports.
Utilizing this information, record searches conducted to meet the requirements of
state and federal law play a critical role in the long-term protection of cultural
resources across Southern California. In addition, the SCIC serves as an integral
part of the local and regional communities, maintaining student internship and public
outreach programs, working with Native American tribes, and local city and county
