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. Literary rights, including copyright for published works held by the creator(s) or their heirs, or other third parties may apply. All rights are reserved unless otherwise indicated by the copyright owner(s).
Please contact the Electronic Resources and Scholarly Communications Librarian, Michael Biondo, with any issues, or questions concerning copyright infringement in this collection.
Finally, the development of this collection is ongoing. If you are a former South Dakota State University graduate student and wish to include your work in Open PRAIRIE, please contact us.
