A note: Often times it is easier to find the newspaper you are interested in online and then search within it for modern stories. Some newspapers do not offer full search capabilities without a subscription. There is a way around this! You can do a Google search for the URL of the newspaper and the search term you are looking for. For example searching on:"http://www.startribune.com/ Twin Cities rental market" will pull up articles from the Star Tribune on the rental market in the Twin Cities.
If you need a book or journal article that MSU does not own (e.g. you cannot find it in the catalog) you can request the item by Interlibrary Loan. Our interlibrary loan system is called Illiad, and can be accessed via this link. Note: you will need to make a new account to use Illiad.
