In August, the MSU Libraries Stephen O. Murray & Keelung Hong Special Collections will begin the process of relocating to the third floor of the Main Library’s East Wing. While this is an exciting phase of growth in the Libraries’ transformative reimagination plan, we will also need to put several services on pause to accommodate the move. Access to our Special Collections will be closed for about 12 weeks beginning mid-August, which especially impacts faculty who use these materials for research as well as classes that use these materials for instruction.
