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.
The MakeCentral Service Desk is closed to the public for the Fall 2020 semester. MakeCentral is happy to offer a contactless service for Poster Prints, Color Prints and Black and White Prints! Submit a job via 3DPrime and we will respond to your request within 24 hours (Monday-Friday). If you would like to use our microfilm reader please use our reserve system. Scanning stations will not be available for the Fall 2020 semester.
