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.

Not Eligible for Renewal

Some MSU Library material cannot be renewed:

  • Items recalled by someone else and marked HOLD on the screen in "My library account."
  • Items long overdue and already billed for replacement; these must be brought to a library for renewal.
  • Items whose loan policies do not allow renewal, such as reserve readings, material checked out by special permission, and 7-day checkouts (software, CDs, videodiscs, records, some branch journals, etc.)
