On March 16, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an Executive Order temporarily closing many public spaces. All academic libraries are included in this order. The Main Library is closed, but we still offer virtual services and many resources do remain available. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for specific Library resources. Reference services are still available via chat and phone. We do have temporary policies for returning/renewing material.
Reference Services provides reference and research assistance to students, faculty, and staff of MSU and community users. In-person assistance is available at the Reference Desk on the first floor of the Main Library near the north entrance. Librarians are also available through email or chat services. Individuals who want one-on-one research assistance should contact the subject specialist in their area. Student Peer Research Assistants are available for drop-in research help at four neighborhood Engagement Centers. Please visit our Ask A Librarian page for more details on how to contact us.
