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.

Multimedia Resources

Guides to image and video resources for use in your presentations, lectures, papers, or courseware:

You may need to create links to electronic journal articles or ebooks that provided the images used in your course materials or D2L. The best way to do this is with a stable link -  that is a link to an online resource that should be stable and allow access in perpetuity. Please seek more information about how to build these in our guides to creating stable links to electronic articles or electronic books.

When using multimedia it is important to understand how you can use these resources and comply with copyright. There is information in the guides linked to above about copyright for specific resources, but for even more help you can read our pages on:
