What We Can Do for Faculty

The Michigan State University Course Materials Program offers the best value in quality course packs. That's why the Associated Students of MSU recommends us to MSU faculty and students. To assist our faculty partners, we:

  • Facilitate the production of print and electronic course packs
  • Distribute printed course packs for sale at the Spartan Bookstore in the MSU International Center and at Collegeville Textbook Company
  • Electronically archive all course pack projects for easy reordering
  • Evaluate copyright clearance needs, processing permission requests and payments, all on your behalf
  • Connect you to other beneficial Library resources
