I need help exploring and discovering the vast amount of archives and databases.
I'm including some links to get your started. However, please feel free to contact the reference desk again for additional assistance and include a specific search you are working on and/or the database you are working with. This will help us provide more specific suggestions for you.
Tip: when prompted for a username/password when using the University Libraries online resources, use your USD email/password login information.
This link leads to a Research (LibGuide) Guide related to using Archives and Speical Collections resources: http://libguides.usd.edu/ASC-Collections?hs=a. There are also tutorials on database searching available from the University Libraries homepage--click Research Tools from the menu on the left side of the page.
For expert assistance related to Archives, the University Library Archivist, Lisa Duncan, may be contacted at Lisa.Duncan@usd.edu or 605-677-8867.
