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.

The MSU Libraries is the designated repository for MERC public sector fact-finding reports, and the police and fire compulsory interest arbitration awards provided for by Public Act 312 (1969). The catalog of MSU's holdings is now available as a searchable web-based database of these reports and awards. The Gast Business Library maintains the database and retains print copies of all reports and awards as well.

Database of the Month: EMIS Professional

Database of the Month

EMIS Professional, formerly known as ISI Emerging Markets EMIS, provides private and public company profiles, industry and country information, news, research reports, financial data, and statistics direct from more than 125 emerging markets in Asia, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

EMIS Professional is available off-campus from the Business Library databases page.


Printing at the Business Library

MSU Print is now the only option for printing in the Business Library. MSU Print is the new system that has replaced NetPrint that many of our returning students may have used in the past. The new system operates the same way by using credits (formerly e-tokens) that are deducted with each page printed. Purchase your credits online. (Note: Doesn’t work with Firefox.)

You can use MSU Print on your laptop as well, without installing a special driver. However, now only certain files (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and PDF) can be printed using MSU Print on your laptop. Read the printing on your laptop guide for more information.

You can find more information about printing and other services like copying and scanning in the Business Library.
