General Tips and Advice
- Check the MSU Online Catalog for books, videos, and more. Note that the MSU Online Catalog is a union catalog which includes the holdings of the Library of Michigan, the MSU College of Law Library, and other branches on our own campus.
- Do a wider search using MelCat (a network of participating Michigan libraries) or WorldCat (searches thousands of libraries). You can request non-MSU Library materials through interlibrary loan. NOTE: Not all materials listed in MelCat or WorldCat can be borrowed through interlibrary loan, but many can.
- Don't forget to use the bibliographies in reference works, books, and articles to identify other resources on your topic.
