Finding Books

What Can I Find in the Library Catalog?

Books and e-books, magazine and journal titles*, newspaper titles*, movies, government documents, MSU theses and dissertations, maps, music and audio recordings, music scores, and more...

Book Checked Out?

If the book you want is checked out or if the MSU Libraries do not own it, try borrowing it from another library using Get It @ MSU thru our InterLibrary Loan Services.

How To...

Note You cannot use the catalog to find individual articles within a magazine, journal, or newspaper - you must use a periodical index for that. Learn more about finding Articles.
