HIST 476/576 History of South Dakota Research Guide

Find Resources in Archives and Special Collections

The research materials in Archives and Special Collections are searchable through online finding aids, guides held in the department, and the USD catalog.  

A Finding Aid is often the tool that both Archives staff and users rely upon to find letters, photographs, reports, diaries and other archival records with the Richardson and USD Archives collections. 

Search the Catalog for books, pamphlets and other materials in the Chilson Collection.
