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.

Microforms Library

The Microforms Library houses approximately 119,000 reels of microfilm, 1.1 million microfiche and microcards, as well as, indexes and printed information for use with these materials. The Microforms Library is located on 2nd Floor West, in the Main Library.

Digital microreaders are available in the Copy Center on 2 West in the Main Library. These reader/scanners allow users to save scanned images to a CD or removable drive at no charge. Printing is also available.

Microcopy Shelves

The microcopy shelves are located in the PRR/Microforms Service Desk area, and contain indexes, guides and other material for use with items in the Microforms Library. A pink cross reference card is found with the microforms if corresponding microcopy material exists. The pink card gives the call number of the microcopy material. This allows it to be located on the microcopy shelves.
