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 Online Catalog (MAGIC).
The Online Catalog is a searchable listing of 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 (MAGIC)?
- 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
To search for books placed on Reserve for your class, search by course or instructor.
NOTE: You cannot use the Online Catalog to find individual articles within a magazine--you must use a periodical index for that.
