This page provides information on library resources and services to support our campus community as courses transition to online delivery.
Hilton M. Briggs Library, South Dakota State University is currently closed.
SDSU students and employees can access most electronic resources (databases, journals, ebooks) using university credentials. You will be prompted to enter your credentials when you click on electronic resources from our webpages.
Library staff have limited access to the library's collection of print books, bound journals, and government documents. We will mail books and other print items that typically circulate to current SDSU students, faculty, and staff. Borrowers will be responsible for returning Items via USPS (mail) or via book returns available at Hilton M. Briggs Library, SDSU (the blue book return located in the parking lot on the northeast corner of the library or just inside the main entrance to the building). Limits on the number of items mailed may be needed to ensure that all users are served. To request materials, contact your Subject Librarian. Requests can also be submitted via your Library Account (login from Quick Search).
QUICK SEARCH will help you find many types of resources:
