Request Material from Remote Storage

Material with the Remote Storage location in the MSU Library catalog is housed in North Lansing. To request an item from Remote Storage, click on the Place Request link located in the catalog record. After logging in with your MSU NetID or Community Borrower ID, follow the prompts to select the materials that you need.

If the Place Request link is not present, please email remote@lib.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 pm Monday-Friday will be available at the Main Library Circulation Desk that same day by 5 pm. Material requested after 2 pm Monday-Friday will be available by 5 pm the next open weekday. Material requested on weekends, holidays, closed days, or after 2 pm Friday will be available by 5 pm Monday (or the next open weekday). Please note that delivery times will be slower if you are requesting to pick material up at a branch library. Please expect a 1-2 day delay.

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 email remote@lib.msu.edu .
