Michigan State University

Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9 a.m .to 7 p.m., Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m .to 5 p.m. on Friday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. These areas include main-floor access to Circulation as well as our study and computing space on the first floor with access to MSU printing. 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.

Stacks Maintenance

Stacks Maintenance is responsible for the daily pick up and shelving of library materials throughout the Main Library. Over 10,000 volumes are shelved in a normal week. These include circulating books returned to the building; books taken from the shelves and used in the building; books used for interlibrary loan; and books returned from the ongoing inventory project. The goal is to shelve every volume that comes to Stacks within 24 hours.

If you cannot find a book in our online catalog on the shelf, please contact the Circulation Department for assistance.
