"Click and go" access to high-quality e-resources now available

PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota students, educators, researchers and others now have easy "click and go" access anywhere within state boundaries to high-quality electronic resources provided by the State Library to school and public libraries and all citizens statewide.

"Thanks to a service called GeoIP authentication, residents can access these electronic resources for homework help, college and career test prep services, genealogy resources, popular magazines, audio e-books for early learners and more without physically entering a library,"" said State Librarian Daria Bossman.

Previously, when outside of a library, users needed a State Library e-card number and password to access these resources. The electronic resources can be found at

School, academic and public libraries remain 'hard-wired' for reliable access, and State Library e-cards remain available. For more information, contact your local librarian or the State Library at 1-800-423-6665.

The State Library’s electronic resources are provided for free to all South Dakota residents through a combination of funding from the South Dakota State Library/Department of Education and federal funding through the Library Services and Technology Act and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
