Michigan State University

On July 2nd, starting at 1 am, the Library's catalog will be undergoing a server migration, which will take approximately 6 hours.  It will be down during that time.  SearchPlus and MelCat will still be available to search MSU Libraries holdings.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.
