MSU students, staff, and faculty can continue to utilize interlibrary loan by placing requests through the MSU Libraries Interlibrary Services department. Community patrons will not be able to use MeLCat through the MSU Libraries during this time, but they can continue to do so using their local public library.

Staff Awards 2020

Paul Cooper
Staff Recognition

Paul immediately stepped up when the library closed to help with 3D Printing in the Makerspace. Paul’s technical and mechanical knowledge of the equipment in the Makerspace was crucial to our success in keeping up face shield production. He not only shared the load of production with Jamie, but he also helped build and maintain our printers throughout the process, and he worked on prototype shield covers for hospitals when they didn’t like our initial design. Paul is always willing to pitch in to find a solution, and he spends a lot of time investigating potential solutions to technical problems that we have. And on top of being a crucial part of our PPE maker team, Paul has taken on the technical support of our Anatomage machine, which will allow us to do both virtual and in-person visualization of human and animal anatomy. Paul’s endless curiosity, willingness to learn, and dedication to the mission of the library makes him more than deserving of the award.
