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.


Engineering Library Closing

The Engineering Library is scheduled to close permanently on Friday, December 18th, 2015.  Any changes and progress will be posted here.

Since this is an ongoing project, there will be times when the Engineering Library is noisy.  Alternatively, quiet study and group study spaces are available in the Main, Math, and Business Libraries.

Beginning Fall Semester 2015, Engineering Course Reserves will be housed in and checked out from the Main Library Reserves (the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor).

Many Engineering books and the current issues of the print journals have been moved to the Main Library.  Low-use materials will be moved to our Remote Storage facility.  Daily runs to Remote Storage allow prompt retrieval of materials.  Please see the library catalog for locations and availability.

Shipwrecks: Sunken Treasures of the Great Lakes

Underwater shipwreck.

Now through December 2015
Main Library, 3rd floor, West Wing

The Great Lakes and their connecting waterways have been a major route for trade and travel for the thousands of years starting with the Native American people who lived in the Great Lakes basin. European explorers and settlers followed in their footsteps. Between the loss of the ship Le Griffon in 1679 and the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in 1975, 6,000 to 8,000 ships are estimated to have sunk in the Great Lakes with an estimated loss of more than 30,000 lives.
