The University Libraries are committed to providing high quality library services to all USD students and faculty. This mission includes USD off-campus students. You can take advantage of our specialized liaison services no matter where you are. Meet your library liaison and schedule a consultation (including online consultations) to receive personalized help.

Access University Libraries Resources from Off-Campus

You have access to library services and resources (including e-books, full text articles and much more) without a trip to the library.

Just go to University Libraries to access resources for your research, when prompted, log in using your user ID name and password (the same as your USD email and myUSD).

For more information about or help with your user ID name and password, contact the ITS Help Desk.

Faculty, staff and students currently enrolled in or employed by a USD distance education program are eligible for the same services as other USD faculty, staff and students. This includes Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Services (ILLiad).
