Requesting Items

Material with the Remote Storage location in the MSU Library catalog is housed in North Lansing. To request an item from Remote Storage, click "Place Request" in the catalog record and follow the prompts.

If there is no "Place Request" link present, please email LIB.remote@msu.edu and include your name, title of the item, volumes needed, and MSU NetID or community borrower barcode number.

Requested items are picked up every weekday (except University holidays or days when the MSU Main Library is closed). Material requested before 2:00 p.m. Monday-Friday will be available at the Main Library Circulation desk that same day by 5:00 p.m. Material requested after 2:00 p.m. Monday-Friday will be available by 5:00 p.m. the next open weekday. Material requested on weekends, holidays, closed days, or after 2:00 p.m. Friday will be available by 5:00 p.m. Monday (or the next open weekday).

If you wish to view items from remote storage but are not eligible for (or do not wish to obtain) an MSU Library Community Card, please e-mail LIB.remote@msu.edu.

Use the In Process / On Order Form to request rush processing of material shown in the catalog as UNDER CONSIDERATION, IN PROCESS, BEING PROCESSED, or ORDERED. This material has arrived in the library. Although it is generally not ready for six weeks, your request will result in priority handling for you.

What happens after this form is submitted? On the next business day, staff will look for requested material and processing will begin or staff will put a note in our records that this item will be given priority handling for you when it arrives in the MSU Libraries.

To request document delivery or material that MSU does not own, submit a request through the Interlibrary Loan Department.

Community Borrowers are not eligible to use InterLibrary Loan services.
