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

MSU students, staff, and faculty can continue to utilize interlibrary loan by placing requests through the MSU Libraries Interlibrary Services department. 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.

Student Employment Application Form and FAQ

Student Employment Application Form

What happens now that I have submitted my application?

Your application is being processed into a database that is reviewed as needed by the student supervisors within the various units at the MSU Libraries. We receive numerous applications each semester so you may not receive correspondence right away. We urge you to keep applying each semester.

When will I be contacted about an interview?

You will only be contacted if a supervisor wishes to set up an interview.

I made a mistake on my application, can I go back and edit it?

In order to edit an application, follow the steps as if you were submitting an entirely new application. When you get to the application, your old information will be available to edit in the boxes.

Is there anything else I can do?

Keep your availability up to date (if your class schedules changes, be sure to edit your application with your updated availability).

If I apply for the fall semester will my application remain on file for the spring semester?

No, you must fill out a new application each semester.

Where else can I apply for a job?
