History of the Family Around the World: Finding Books in the M.S.U. Libraries

Finding Books in the M.S.U. Libraries

How do I search for books on my topic?

To search for books in the MSU Libraries on a topic, you will need to use the MSU Libraries' online catalog. The online catalog contains the materials owned and located in the MSU Libraries, including: books, journals, government documents, microforms, videos/DVDs/CDs, etc.

When should I use the online catalog?

* To find whether we own a specific book, including its location and call number

* To browse for books on a topic

* To find whether we subscribe to a specific magazine, journal, or newspaper

NOTE: You cannot use the online catalog to find individual articles within a magazine or journal--you must use a periodical index for that.
