Michigan State University

On March 16, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an Executive Order temporarily closing many public spaces. All academic libraries are included in this order. The Main Library is closed, but we still offer virtual services and many resources do 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.

Office of Copyright

The purpose of the Library Office of Copyright is to act as a centralized reference point for members of the MSU community for information and guidance on copyright as it applies to teaching, research, and other activities on campus. The Office of Copyright will strive to educate the MSU community about copyright law and compliance through this web site, in-person workshops, and consultations.
