Michigan State University

Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday and 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. These areas include main-floor access to Circulation as well as our study and computing space on 1 East with access to MSU printing. As of Feb. 1st, we opened 1 West. Our total capacity at this time is 120 people. We also now have touchless lockers, where you may pick up materials. Outside of safety, our top priority is to provide access to all of our collections. We continue to offer virtual services. We also are paging materials and will continue to mail materials to faculty, staff, and students living off-campus. We encourage you to use our convenient distance services. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for more information.

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?
