Starting on Thursday, December 23, 2021, MeLCat Borrowing and Lending will be suspended while the MSU Libraries undergoes a significant software transition.

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.

Strategic Planning Committee
Special Projects

The formation of the Libraries’ first strategic plan in twenty years was high-impact work, and also high-demand work. The intellectual and emotional rigors involved - as well as the time commitments (35+ hours!) -were more substantial than anyone could have anticipated. The Committee was charge with the harrowing task of reviewing, synthesizing, and condensing an enormous amount of stakeholder feedback into a harmonized, attractive, and usable document. The nature of the project meant it was conducted in the spotlight, under a tight timeline, and without the support of precedent or past experience. The committee’s willingness to show up, stay engaged, and flex around existing responsibilities is so appreciated. Their work has given the libraries a long-term positive direction that’s particularly useful during our current period of difficulty and uncertainty.
