Community members and anyone who is not affiliated with the University may be eligible to obtain a free Community Borrower's Card at the Circulation Desk. A Community Borrower's Card entitles the patron to use the building including the computers, and check out library materials with his/her library account.
- Please fill out this form, and bring it to the Circulation Desk to obtain your free Community Borrower's Card.
- Learn about USD lending policies, renew materials online, recall checked-out materials, and more.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Interlibrary Loan provides a means for students, faculty and staff to borrow books and articles from other libraries.
For assistance, please visit us on the first floor, or contact us by phone at (605) 677-6085. You can also ask us questions online through chat/instant messenger or e-mail by using our Ask a Librarian online reference service.
What & Where is it in the U Libraries?
Access to USD Resources
While some of the resources 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.
Note on Noise
Ssshhhhhhh....each floor of the library gets progressively quieter. While talking and collaborative learning take place on the first floor, it becomes a whisper on the second floor and silence on the third floor.
Cell phones may be used on the first floor and in the stairwells.
