We are excited to announce that we are moving to a new catalog from June 27th through the 30th. As we make this transition, some services will be affected.

  • You will still be able to check out books or other library material in person at the library.
  • Requests for pick up at circulation desks will be unavailable during this time.
  • You will have to request materials from other libraries using Get It @ MSU. Note: Borrowing from other Michigan Libraries through MelCat continues to be suspended until further notice.

To learn more information, please see our FAQ page.

Faculty/Staff Office Delivery

MSU faculty and staff members may request that books be checked out to them and delivered to their offices on campus as listed with the MSU Office of the Registrar.

After finding an available item in the MSU Libraries catalog, please use the Get It! button (displayed below) to request a delivery. Choose the 'Request Delivery to My Office' option on the next page. You will be asked to log into your ILLiad account to submit the request.

Get It Button Example

Requests may also be submitted directly by logging onto the Libraries' ILLiad system and selecting "Loan (Book/Other)."

Please note the following policies for this service:

  • Material will usually be delivered within 3-5 business days.
  • If requested material is checked out or cannot be found, we will request it from another library and notify you by email. If you have not received an email and have not received your material in a week, please email to ask.
  • The Library reserves the right to limit the number of requests processed to 10 per week to ensure that requests from other users can be processed in a timely manner.
  • Retired faculty may use this service if they have a campus address.
  • Do not use ILLiad to request that an item be delivered to the library from which it circulates (i.e. requesting that an item from the Gast Business Library be delivered to the Gast Business Library).

Material not eligible for Faculty/Staff Delivery:

  • Non-circulating materials: reference, microforms, current periodicals, special collections, and reserves.
