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 mission of the MSU Libraries' Information Literacy Unit is to foster successful information seeking and lifelong learning by supporting analytical thinking–acquiring, analyzing, evaluating and effectively using information from multiple sources–in a rapidly changing environment. The Information Literacy unit provides numerous instruction materials and resources to students and faculty.
