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.

Please help us manage resources effectively. For casual or one-time use of a book or similar item, consider borrowing via the MeLCat system or other Inter Library Loan options.

NOTE: If you wish to suggest a journal or other subscription, please contact the appropriate Subject Librarian. Due to the substantial and ongoing cost of new journals, these requests will be evaluated in light of available funds and anticipated use.

NOTE TO FACULTY: If you want to place the book on Reserve (Assigned Reading) for your class, please use the Reserve Book Purchase Request instead.
