We are excited to announce that we are moving to a new catalog from June 27th through the 30th. As we make this transition, some services will be affected.

  • You will still be able to check out books or other library material in person at the library.
  • Requests for pick up at circulation desks will be unavailable during this time.
  • You will have to request materials from other libraries using Get It @ MSU. Note: Borrowing from other Michigan Libraries through MelCat continues to be suspended until further notice.
