Material requested before 11am Monday-Friday will be available at the Main Library Circulation Desk that same day by 5pm. Material requested after 11am Monday-Friday will be available by 5pm the next open weekday. Material requested on weekends, holidays, closed days, or after 11am Friday will be available by 5pm Monday (or the next open weekday).

Delivery Options
Delivery is only for MSU faculty/staff and students in Veterinary Medicine or at the Kellogg Biological Station (Gull Lake). Because much of the material in Remote Storage is fragile, delivery via campus mail is not available. We will hold the item for you at the Main Circulation Desk, or it can be delivered by library courier to one of our Branch Libraries (where it will be available according to the same schedule as above). NOTE: Journals available online are an exception -- they will not be delivered to a branch library, but will be held only at Main Library Circulation.
