The library has over 170 journal and reference databases, containing full-text articles, videos, and other academic materials. These databases may be searched from within the library, or from outside the library by entering an MSU ID and Password. You may browse the databases:

If you need a meeting room the library has several options that can be scheduled using the button below.  Our policy is to make each space available for reservations only two weeks in advance.  This is to prevent people from monopolizing our limited number of rooms.

If you need a camera or other types of equipment for an assignment or special project, then the library has a number of things available for checkout.  See what is available by using this link.
