Online Catalog

What Can I Find in the Online Library Catalog?

Books, e-books, magazine and journal titles, newspaper titles, movies, government documents, MSU theses and dissertations, maps, music and audio recordings, music scores, and more...

 The online catalog can be searched in a number of ways including by author, title, subject, or keyword. If you are searching for a particular item you can do an author or title search.  You can also search for a particular item by searching its author and title at one time or by searching for it by using its ISBN number. Use the keyword or subject search to locate items relating to a your topic. Because libraries assign subject headings to books that may not match the terms you are familiar with, it is often useful to do a keyword search using the words you are familiar with and then see what subject heading(s) are assigned to the items that seem to be the most useful to you and then doing another search using those subject headings.
