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.

Ronald Dietz Collection

The University Seal
Ronald Dietz donated his large, rare map collection to MSU in 2013. The collection consists of several hundred maps dating from the 17th to the 20th century and several dozen reference books on the history of cartography and map collecting. Many of the maps relate to the mapping of Michigan and the Great Lakes.
