  • UA 050.03
  • Records
  • 1885-1981

Included with some of the files are materials related to topics being discussed at the meetings, such as a petition by a student group, or a brochure from a campus event. For the most part, the contents of the minutes are fairly dry and businesslike, although some gems might be discovered with careful attention.

Faculty Publications

  • UA 053.002
  • Collection
  • 1994-2009

Artificial collection composed of articles and publications written by South Dakota State University faculty.

The Faculty Publications is an ongoing collection of articles and publications written by South Dakota State University faculty. This material has been collected in a haphazard manner. There has never been a policy to collect anything smaller than books written by faculty authors, so the assumption here is that these articles, were, for the most part, donated to the archives. There is not a program to collect such material. Currently, if material arrives in the archives, it is added to the collection.

It is recommended that researchers ask staff about materials by specific faculty members.
