SD Share-It Turned One Year Old in July

Happy Birthday, South Dakota Share-It! One Year Old, July 2017

South Dakota Share-It is a service of the South Dakota State Library. This service is provided at NO COST to participating libraries. The South Dakota Share-It network allows users to search library catalogs wherever they have internet access. Authenticated users (users holding a valid library card at a participating library) will be able to search the catalog + the subscription e-resources provided by the SD State Library. All other libraries and patrons that have a SD State Library barcode/password will be able to login and search the subscription e-resources.

This network allows individual libraries to have their own ILS (integrated library system/catalog) and still be able to search multiple catalog and electronic resources at one time, as well as participate in statewide interlibrary loan.

PARTICIPATING LIBRARIES

All participating libraries sign an agreement and work with the SD State Library on implementation.

AUTHENTICATION

As part of South Dakota Share-It, patron authentication is provided for electronic resources licensed through the SD State Library.

What this means for libraries:
  • In-house use:
    • If your library/patrons access electronic resources via South Dakota Share-It OR the SDSL web page - access will be by ip authentication, click and go

    • If your library/patrons access electronic resources via links on your library web page using your own authentication system (i.e. EZproxy) – access will be through that system
  • Remote access (out of library or off-campus):
    • If your library/patrons access electronic resources via South Dakota Share-It OR the SDSL web page – access will be by barcode/password

INTERLIBRARY LOAN


  • If you request interlibrary loan materials through the SD State Library you will request those materials via South Dakota Share-It
  • If your library is participating in South Dakota Share-It, your library will process interlibrary loan requests directly in South Dakota Share-It

Instructions for logging in and placing requests are available on the SDSL web page.

Please contact Dustin Larmore, [Dustin.Larmore@state.sd.us] or Brenda Hemmelman, [Brenda.Hemmelman@state.sd.us], with any questions regarding interlibrary loan.
