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.
