Request Material from Remote Storage

Material with the Remote Storage location in the MSU Library catalog is housed in North Lansing.  To request an item from Remote Storage, click on the Request It! button located in the catalog record.  After logging in with your MSU NetID or Community Borrower ID, follow the prompts to select the materials that you need.

If there is no Request it! button present, or if you need to borrow more than 10 volumes of a title, please email remote@mail.lib.msu.edu and include your name, title of the item, volumes needed, and MSU NetID or community borrower number. 

Requested items are picked up every weekday (except University holidays or days when the MSU Main Library is closed). Material requested before 11am Monday-Friday will be available at the Main Library Circulation Desk that same day by 5pm. Material requested after 11am Monday-Friday will be available by 5pm the next open weekday. Material requested on weekends, holidays, closed days, or after 11am Friday will be available by 5pm Monday (or the next open weekday).

If you wish to request US Government Documents from Remote Storage but are not eligible for (or do not wish to obtain) an MSU Library Community Card, please e-mail remote@mail.lib.msu.edu.
