Education Overview

A brief look at the research materials related to Education available through the MSU Libraries

Finding Books at MSUL

Education books and ebooks can be found by searching our library's catalog by title, topic, or subject area. If there is a book the library does not own, you may either request it from another library through InterLibrary Services, or you may send a book purchase recommendation and the subject librarian will follow up.

The Library of Congress is the classification system used by academic libraries. Under the LCCN, Education related resources fall under the "L-LT" call numbers. The L call numbers are located in the Basement Center of the Main Library.

Some Education resources are located in an area called Special Collections. This is not a browsable collection, and those books cannot be checked out of the library, but patrons can still access these materials from our Special Collections Reading Room on the first floor lobby of the library.

MSUL has a small children's literature collection located on the second floor, west wing of the library. The collection contains both picture books and young adult novels. Those books can be checked out for 3 weeks at a time. You can search for children's literature using the Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
