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.

InterLibrary Services (Document Delivery)


InterLibrary Services borrows or obtains copies of materials not available in the MSU Libraries on behalf of MSU's faculty, staff, and students, and lends or provides copies of MSU Libraries materials requested by other libraries. Our MSU Article Retrieval Service (MARS) provides copies of MSU Libraries print articles and chapters to MSU faculty, staff and graduate students.
