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.

Ask a Health Sciences Librarian 

MSU health sciences librarians are available to help with using library resources, database searching, reference questions, and finding material for teaching and research.  We try to respond to all questions within 24 hours on weekdays, but response times may vary. Those seeking medical advice should contact a physician, nurse, or veterinarian.

For questions related to a specific subject area, email the specialist librarian below:

In addition, the MSU Libraries Ask a Librarian service is available 24/7.  Reference librarians from MSU or from partnering institutions can help with basic questions.
