Getting Books/Articles Without Coming to the Library

Most books, videos, and journals that the library has for the MPH program can be accessed electronically, as long as you have your NetID and password. But even if you need something that we only have in print, you'll still be able to get access to it as a distance student. On the interlibrary loan page, you can find the services that will help you do that:

  1. Request a scan of an article or chapter in a book that MSU owns. Click on "Items Owned by MSU" and then select "Request a chapter/article scan."
  2. Request Distance Delivery of a book to your house. Stay on the "Items Owned by MSU" tab and then click "Request Distance Delivery."
  3. Request something MSU doesn't have. Click on the "ILL Services" tab and then click either "Request a book" or "Request a Chapter/Article Scan."
