Reference Services

Reference Desk in the Main Library

Reference Services provides reference and research assistance to students, faculty, and staff of MSU and community users. In-person assistance is available at the Reference Desk on the first floor of the Main Library near the north entrance. Librarians are also available through email, and 24/7 chat or IM services. Individuals who want one-on-one research assistance should contact the subject specialist in their area, or MSU students and faculty can make an appointment to meet with a librarian at an Engagement Center. Please visit our Ask A Librarian page for more details on how to contact us.
