The Holbrook Library provides access to a wide variety of research databases and resources provide by the Air Force, the Air Combat Command, and the State of South Dakota.  Access to many of these resources are restricted to comply with licensing requirements.


The manner in which they can be accessed depend on the network you are connected to-- on-base or off-base locations.  On-base locations in this context apply to the NIPR (military) network, and the QoLNet network available in on-base facilities, residential connections whether on or off base are considered to be off base in this discussion.


On-base: Refers to duty locations and on-base facilities (non-residential). Click on the On-Base link at the left for links to resources.

Off-base: Some resources can be accessed from the Air Force Portal with a valid account, or through our online catalog with a valid account. Links to the AF Portal are provided in the right margin.

  • Air Force Portal. You must have a valid account and access to this portal is not controlled locally -- read more here. Once logged into the AF Portal, the primary online reference and research resources may be found at the ACC/AFSOC/AFGSC Library Program Research Center.
