Collection Indexes

The Cultural Heritage Center is currently closed for construction. We expect to reopen to the public in 2025. Although the Research Room is closed, you can still submit research requests for records! Visit our Research Services page for more information.

This page contains indexes and guides to collections available at the South Dakota State Archives. We hope the indexes help you plan your visit to the archives, or provide enough information to submit a research request.

The indexes are best viewed on a desktop computer. Some are saved as PDF files and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view.
