Legal Implications

  • Removing material from the MSU libraries without checking it out may result in criminal charges.
  • Michigan Compiled Law (MCL750.391) defines damaging library material (or keeping it overdue) as larceny.
  • Unresolved bills may be turned over to a collection agency any time after 30 days.
  • ID cards are MSU property; if used by anyone other than the identified person, they will be confiscated on the spot.
