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.

Welcome to the Research Data Services Catalog

The Research Data Services Catalog (RDSC) is a guide to research data services available to MSU-affiliated researchers. It provides a unified presence for the distributed network of research data resources that exist across campus.

Research data services are support programs that facilitate the collection, organization, storage, sharing, and preservation of original MSU produced research data.

The image below represents the lifecycle of the research process. MSU provides resources and assistance across all areas of your work. Navigate the service catalog by clicking on the area in which you need support or by using the left hand menu bar.

Service providers should contact the RDMG team for assistance updating and adding profiles to the Research Data Services Catalog.
