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.

User Experience @ MSU Libraries

The User Experience (UX) and Web Services unit seeks to provide a pleasant, positive, and successful experience in using the Libraries’ physical and digital spaces, services, and collections. The UX sub-team leads and collaborates on user research, data collection, and assessment activities to understand and advocate for the needs and experiences of Library users. The Web Services sub-team maintains and improves the Libraries' primary websites.
