Access to USD Resources

While some of the resources in this guide are freely available, most research databases and electronic journals and many online library services have access restrictions that require that you be a current University of South Dakota student, faculty member, or staff member.

See this page for help.



There are several types of information available to Art students through the University Libraries, both in print form and electronically. The tabs along the top of the page provide details on the different formats listed below:

Reference Books This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions and shorter explanations.
Books A book can provide detailed background and historical information. Books are a place to check for information that is generally accepted in the field.
Articles Articles from journals and magazines are the primary source for recent research in a field. Most cutting-edge research will appear in articles first. University Libraries databases can help connect you to these articles.
Web Sites The internet can provide a wealth of information, especially from government sources and from professional organizations.

 Please contact Danielle Loftus with any questions relating to this guide, other USD University Library services, or research in Art or Art History.
