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.


Computers in the Map Library are available for map-related needs. The Map Library has three "Full Set of Application" computers for patron use, specially loaded with ArcGIS software. The full set of applications computer requires an MSU netID. Also among their programs (like all Full Set of Applications computers) it has ArcView 3.2. Please see a full list of computer applications for more information. These computers are intended for map-related needs including using GIS software, finding maps or GIS datasets on the Internet, using the Map Library CD-ROM products, or other related activities.

One other computer is a "Selected Resources" computer which does not require a MSU login or password, but is restricted to MSU library resources, including Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps of Michigan and use of the scanner.

Please visit the Internet and Wireless page for more information about wireless access in the MSU Libraries for information about wireless access.
