ID Weeks 3rd Floor Access

Beginning this week, contractors will be installing new carpet on the 3rd floor of ID Weeks. Between May 10 and approximately June 15, access to ID Weeks 3rd floor will generally be limited to library faculty and staff.

The Circulation department (first floor of ID Weeks), however, will retrieve books upon request from faculty, students, staff, and the public. For safety reasons, there may be limited periods of time when materials cannot be accessed by library staff.  Insofar as possible, our objective is to ensure access to the book collection during the project. If you need assistance with accessing books on the 3rd floor or have other questions, please email the Circulation department at circ@usd.edu or call 605-677-5373.

For information about access to Archives and Special Collections, please email speccoll@usd.edu or call 605-677-5450.

Project progress and related information will be posted to the University Libraries’ blog http://usd-library.blogspot.com/.

The University Libraries are trialing Henry Stewart Talks, The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection. The collection is comprised of more than 2,100 specially prepared, animated lectures by world leading experts. The collection is highly prized for providing researchers easy access to the same experts that they would like to see present at an international conference or hear speak at a guest lecture and is particularly suitable for use in distance, blended, team learning and flipped classroom programs.   https://hstalks.com/biosci/
