GeoIP: A new, improved way to Access the Electronic Resources

The South Dakota State Library has made it easier for residents to access the 54 library-provided electronic resources from home or anywhere outside of a library or school building.

With the new system, GeoIP, if the user is physically located within the State of South Dakota, all you should have to do is "click and go,” just like when you are inside a school or library. This is much faster and simpler than the previous system which required entering a library card and password (the ecard/barcode method will remain as a backup). For most residents, GeoIP will be invisible, making the process much simpler. GeoIP information is also on the SD State Library's Login Help page.

If you have additional questions, please contact your local librarian, or David Bradford [] or Nina Mentzel [] at the SD State Library.
