We are excited to announce that we are moving to a new catalog from June 27th through July 8th. 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.

ATTENTION: Do not log in to your library account at this time. We are in the process of migrating to a new system. If you log in, what you see may not be an accurate representation of your checked out materials, and if you renew your material, the renewal will fail.

Permission to Film and/or Photograph in MSU Libraries

The MSU Libraries are spaces for students, faculty and staff to use for study, research and collaboration. We get many requests to use our spaces for filming, however we must balance these requests with the needs for our space and the privacy of the people that are studying within it. The Michigan Library Privacy Act protects the privacy of our users and the materials that they use from filming unless they give permission to do so, therefore any filming in the Libraries must take extra precautions to not film patrons studying or researching.

Please note the course and professor if filming is affiliated with a class.
