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.

At right: The Codex Borgia is one of the last surviving pre-Columbian Aztec painted manuscripts, now preserved in the Vatican Library. A beautiful and extremely accurate facsimile edition was published in 2008, and we were fortunate to be able to purchase a copy with funds from the MSU Class of 1994 Library Endowment Fund.
