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.



With the exception of reference materials and periodicals less than 10 years old, paper government documents may be checked out. Materials should be taken to one of the check-out desks on the first floor. Microfiche, microprint and microfilm do not circulate. CD-ROM products are available for circulation.

For other questions, please see MSU Library's Lending Policies and Borrower Responsibilities.
