Michigan State University

We are currently experiencing problems accessing our catalog, the vendor has been contacted and is working to make appropriate repairs. We apologize for the inconvenience. 


On July 2nd, starting at 1 am, the Library's catalog will be undergoing a server migration, which will take approximately 6 hours.  It will be down during that time.  SearchPlus and MelCat will still be available to search MSU Libraries holdings.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.
