  • Papers, records, and published materials of South Dakota and alumni authors.
  • Modern political papers, including grass roots politics and political figures associated with South Dakota and South Dakota State University.
  • South Dakota and regional materials—including, but not limited to, the papers of organizations, local businesses, community figures, families, and especially material related to farming and its development in South Dakota.

All material is be treated according to the guidelines set forth in individual gift agreements governing a particular collection and the policies and procedures of the Archives.
