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.

How do I print from MSU Libraries resources?
When printing from MSU Libraries resources, always check to see if there is a window open inside your browser that also has a print icon. If there is a print icon there, use that icon rather than the browser's print function. Using the browser's print function will not get the text but the outside frame instead. Visit the Printing & Plotting page for more information about printing in the MSU Libraries.
