How to find books?

To locate books of a particular topic, you can try the searching below:
1. MSU Libraries' Online Catalog. Searching by author, title, keyword, subject, etc., you will find call number, location, and checking status of a book in all libraries of MSU.
2. Inter-Library Loan (ILL). If no library in MSU owns a particular book, you may want to borrow it from other libraries. You can simply fill out an online inter-library loan request form .
