Though MSU Libraries remain closed to the public due to COVID-19, we are preparing to welcome students this fall, and we are working on changes inside our Library to welcome people safely. Our goal is to reopen to the public August 24. Until then (and after), we will continue to offer virtual services. Many resources 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.

*Our contracts with the vendors restrict off-campus access to currently enrolled MSU students and current employees. MSU Alumni are not included in these groups.
Visitors to the main library may also access these maps at one of our Selected Resources computers. The main library has eight workstations on the first floor near the entrance, and we also have one workstation in the Map Library which is inside the main library on the 3rd floor of the west wing.
If you are a member of the MSU community and your NetID and password are not working to get you into these sites, please see this Guide to Off-Campus Access.
