Authentication, IP address registration, database URLs and more:

Databases specifically curated for:

GeoIP authenticates users by IP and geographic location, meaning as long as the user is physically in South Dakota, they are able to access most SDSL databases immediately.

Simply CLICK on your desired database, and your device should take you directly to the resource.

Should you see "Allow this application to use your location", select ALLOW and proceed. If this doesn't work for you, please log in with your local library card or use your SD State Library eCard.

Please note the following:

  • GeoIP access does not apply to Ancestry Library.
  • If you live near the state border, you may experience some geolocation inconsistencies.
  • When accessing databases through your local library, please continue using their interface.

The South Dakota State Library coordinates an audiobook and ebook library provided through Overdrive. Patrons of member public libraries may sign up and check out books from the thousands of items in this electronic library.
