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.

Staff Awards 2020

Systems - Work From Home
Special Projects

When technology things are chaotic, Systems staff lend a calm and steady hand. They are exemplars in providing robust, reliable, and secure infrastructure. During the lead up and early phases of the work-from-home mandate, the Systems staff also displayed an absolute willingness to jump in and help. They quickly crafted telecommuting guidance, complete with detailed step-by-step graphics for using MSU specific tools as varied at the VPN and Office 365. They identified and prepared laptops for nearly a quarter of the staff who had no ready alternative for remote work (recall: there had been a run on laptops and one simply could not buy a machine in a timely manner). It is, however, their personal connections and firm understanding of Library staff work styles that assuaged anxieties and made the transition easier.
