These valuable services are available to all SDSU faculty, staff and currently enrolled students who cannot make regular (at least weekly) trips to the Brookings area:
- Research databases. Find thousands of journals, magazines, newspapers and other documents online through your SDSU Library home page (http://www.sdstate.edu/library).

We even deliver copies obtained from other libraries--usually within 5 working days. Articles are delivered online to your ILLiad Interlibrary Loan account.
