Due to major system maintenance, you will not be able to request items through MeLCat beginning on November 18, 2015.  Renewals for MeLCat items will still be possible until December 2, 2015.  The system should be available for requesting again in early December.  If you are MSU faculty, student or staff, please try Uborrow.  Our community borrowers will not have access to interlibrary loan through MSU during that time. For more information, please read this MeLCat Server Migration FAQ. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Legal Implications

  • Removing material from the MSU libraries without checking it out may result in criminal charges.
  • Michigan Compiled Law (MCL750.391) defines damaging library material (or keeping it overdue) as larceny.
  • Unresolved bills may be turned over to a collection agency any time after 30 days.
  • ID cards are MSU property; if used by anyone other than the identified person, they will be confiscated on the spot.
