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.

About Us

This Digital Library website pulls together materials and services related to health sciences at the Michigan State University Libraries and serves all faculty, staff, and students in MSU's health colleges and other colleges who are in clinical or biomedical areas. Because there is no separate "bricks and mortar" health sciences library at MSU, books and journals can be found at the MSU Main Library (clinical medicine, nursing, allied health, biological sciences, and veterinary medicine).

For the past decade or more, the MSU Libraries has focused on acquiring health sciences materials, particularly journals, in electronic form, as our affiliated health sciences faculty and students can be found all over the state of Michigan. Through this site, MSU affiliated faculty, staff, and students can access over 9000 biomedical and clinical electronic journals, databases for searching the research literature, evidence based medicine point of care resources, electronic books, and more.

Six health sciences librarians are available to provide help and services to faculty, staff, and students in the health and biomedical subject areas. We do instruction and consultation in using our resources and can provide help in finding materials for your research, teaching, study or assignment needs.
