Search for Finding Aids
A finding aid provides an overview of a collection as well as, in some cases, detailed listings of the files in a collection. Looking for University records and historical documents begins with looking at the finding aids to University Archives and Richardson collections.
Please note that finding aids are not available for all collections. If you don't find the information you are looking for, please contact Archives and Special Collections, or refer to the "Using Archives and Special Collections at the University of South Dakota" research guide..
**A finding aid generally does not include digital copies of the collection. To view digitized archival materials, including pictures of USD and historical documents, visit our Digital Library of South Dakota.
