This community houses work produced by South Dakota State University graduate students. The collection includes both born digital ETDs, and digitized versions of printed theses and dissertations from 1883 to 2012.
Due to copyright restrictions, the collection contains both open access and university access theses and dissertations. University access items are only available to SDSU users, and on-campus visitors. Non-SDSU users wishing to access restricted materials may request items through their institution’s interlibrary loan services.

Open PRAIRIE strives to confirm that all open access items are clear of any copyright restrictions. Works in Open PRAIRIE are made available exclusively for educational purposes such as research or instruction.
