Guide to Collections relating to South Dakota Norwegian-Americans compiled by Harry F. Thompson, Ph.D. Director of Research Collections and Publications, The Center for Western Studies With the assistance of Arthur R. Huseboe, Ph.D. and Paul B. Olson, Additional assistance by Carol Riswold, D. Joy Harris, and Laura Plowman.

Originally published in 1991 by The Center for Western Studies, Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD 57197 and updated in 2007. Original publication was made possible by a grant from the South Dakota Committee on the Humanities and by a gift from Harold L. Torness of Sisseton, South Dakota.

This covers 55 libraries or institutions which have materials about Norwegian-Americans in South Dakota. Many of them are not located in South Dakota. These libraries also have colletions and materials about Norwegian-Americans living elsewhere, such as Wyoming, Washington, and Wisconsin to mention a few. While the guide lists specifically those materials relating to South Dakota, the repositories have a wealth of information about Norwegian-Americans regardless of their location.
