Michigan State University

We are excited to announce that we are moving to a new catalog from June 27th through July 1st. 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.

Stable Linking Services

MSU Libraries understands that there is a multitude of educational resources available for use by your students, as well as varying formats and modes of access to the content. It can be difficult to determine if the proposed use of a third-party selection is copyright-compliant and legal.

Additionally, as the Library’s electronic collections and offerings grow in volume, we recognize an increased demand for Stable Links to e-content – the recommended way to provide your students with direct access to Library E-Resource content. We are offering our assistance to faculty and staff.

Stable Linking Assistance to Library Content

  1. The most expedient way to create a Stable Link is to consult and follow our Stable Link Guide
  2. If you are still having difficulty, contact Reference and Discovery Services at 517-353-8700 or reachout@msu.edu for assistance
  3. For faculty, a librarian liaison to your department can provide troubleshooting advice, or training one-on-one or to a group
