Collecting should follow and anticipate, when possible, major trends and developments in allied health. The collections should reflect curricular trends and support new and emerging areas of research and practice. There is an increased demand for electronic resources and information formats beyond the traditional books and journals, including diagnostic and point-of-care tools.
The MSU collection is a component of the Network of the National Library of Medicine, Greater Midwest Region (NNLM GMR). The MSU Libraries serve as a Resource Library for the region, supporting hospital libraries and other libraries through interlibrary loan.
MSU and its Libraries are a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA). Consortial purchases with the BTAA have added important online resources, especially large journal and ebook packages.
