Ask the Language Learning Librarian
Dear MAFLT Grad Students,
As the liaison librarian for language learning at the MSU Libraries, I'm delighted to serve as your guide to the many resources and services available to you as MSU distance learners. I hope to meet you all virtually soon, if not face-to-face, to help you answer those library research questions not covered elsewhere in this guide. You'll find my contact information in the profile box at the top of the right-hand column. (An e-mail to me with "MAFLT" in the subject line is best: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Distance Learning Services
Including learning management system help--Desire2Learn and ANGEL.
Off Campus Access
Off campus access to library electronic resources is through EZ Proxy. When you find a resource on our e-resources page or in our library catalog, you will receive a login page asking for your NetID and password. Just enter your information and you'll be automatically taken to the resource. If you have any problems please call us at 1.517.353.8700

Library, Google or Google Scholar?
It's not really an either/or, of course, depending on your information needs. So, if you decide to use a Google product or other search engines, search smart and save time by defining scholar settings for MSU Libraries access.
Google Scholar, the Smart Way
To ensure seamless access to MSU resource subscriptions, please do the following:
- After you've selected "Settings" at the top left of Google Scholar
- Click on "Library Links" and search for Michigan State University Libraries.
- Select and establish MSU access.
- Do your search in Google Scholar.
- Click on the link for "MSU Access" that will appear to the right of the title of the resource.
You will then be prompted for your MSU NetID and password to access that resource.
Please note - if you click on the title and not the "MSU Access" link you won't be recognized as an MSU subscriber. "MSU Access" links will appear as long as you don't close your browser.
If you need assistance or more information, please contact the library's Off Campus, Online, and Wireless Access desk at (517) 353-8700 or visit your MAFLT community page.
