Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. These areas include main-floor access to Patron Services as well as our study and computing space on 1 East with access to MSU printing. Capacity for the study space is 100 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 fifteen public universities that comprise the Michigan Association of State Universities (MASU) are extending loan periods with one another via the Michigan-based borrowing program known as MeLCat. If you receive a book from one of the fifteen universities, your loan period will now be 90 days with an option to renew for an additional 30 days. Please note that this due-date extension is limited to only MASU libraries and does not apply to media items (DVDs, CDs, etc).
If you have any questions about this extension, just ask!
Check out the blog post by our own Jonathan Callies, "Libraries Lead: An Obligation to Enlighten and Improve Communities". See the original National Library Week Tweet.
The loan period for items requested through UBorrow has been extended! You can now keep your materials for up to 16 weeks (a full semester). Even if we don't own the item you need, you can still Get It @ MSU. See the original UBorrow announcement Tweet.
