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.

Carole Armstrong Endowment Fund for Staff Development

Carole Armstrong served as a librarian in the MSU Libraries for many years, including as Director of Libraries from 1994-1997. The Carole Armstrong Endowment Fund was established to foster an atmosphere of intellectual exploration. Funds provide support for lectures, workshops, or other programs in the MSU Libraries for the University community. Topics need not be restricted to those of particular interest to Libraries, but should range widely over topics of an interdisciplinary nature targeted to the non-expert, but intellectually curious audience. Topics chosen from the sciences are encouraged.
