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.

The MSU Libraries: an investment in the entire university

The library’s role in the university is more important than ever before.

Our extensive print and online collections support teaching and research across the entire spectrum of disciplines.

Librarians work intensively with students on information literacy skills, and with faculty members on their advanced research needs.

Our distance learning staff ensure that users connect to resources easily – from a campus office or classroom, or from fieldwork in another country.

We advise faculty on copyright, data management, and sources of research funding. We develop partnerships with peer institutions for effective resource-sharing.

There are very few places at MSU where your gift can benefit so many. Please join us in keeping this vital part of the MSU community on an upward trajectory.
