Michigan State University

Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday and 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. These areas include main-floor access to Circulation as well as our study and computing space on 1 East with access to MSU printing. As of Feb. 1st, we opened 1 West. Our total capacity at this time is 120 people. 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.

User Experience @ MSU Libraries

The User Experience (UX) unit seeks to provide a pleasant, positive, and successful experience in using the Libraries’ physical and digital spaces, services, and collections. We lead and collaborate on user research, data collection, and assessment activities to understand and advocate for the needs and experiences of Library users.
