Library Access (Open with restrictions. Virtual services available)

The Main Library is open, though we do have reduced hours and occupancy restrictions. Outside of safety, our top priority is to provide access to all of our collections. We will continue to offer virtual services. We also are paging materials, and we will have touchless lockers available this fall to pick up materials. We will continue to mail materials to faculty, staff, and students living off-campus. Though the building will be open, we encourage you to use our convenient distance services. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for more information.

Any individual who is a Michigan resident (18 years or older) is eligible for community library cards for the Michigan State University Libraries.
