Starting on Thursday, December 23, 2021, MeLCat Borrowing and Lending will be suspended while the MSU Libraries undergoes a significant software transition.

Community patrons will not be able to use MeLCat through the MSU Libraries during this time, but they can continue to do so using their local public library.
