Finding Books

1. Search the MSU Libraries' Online Catalog. Both ebooks and print books are listed in this catalog, as well as videos, DVDs, and print and electronic journals. This catalog is shared with a number of other academic and public libraries in Mississippi; you can request items owned by these libraries by placing a "hold" on the item. It will then be delivered to MSU for you to borrow.

2. Request a book through Interlibrary Loan. If a book is not available in our online catalog, you can borrow it from another library by placing an Interlibrary Loan request. To do so, log into your Interlibrary Loan account and fill out a book request form; books typically take 1-2 weeks to be delivered, and you will be notified via phone or email when they're available for pickup.
