LB 492: Scientific Virtue (Pennock): Searching the Library Catalog

Using the Library, AY 2021-2022

Things on campus are looking different due to COVID-19, and the library is no exception. Here are some links to instructions and videos that tell you how you can still get library books, print documents at the library, and study at the library. BE AWARE THAT MASKS MUST BE WORN IN THE LIBRARY. Library staff may stop you if they see you are not wearing one; if you don't have one on you, the library has some disposables. 

Dean's Message about current library access

Using the Library: Things to Know

Getting Library Books (2020/2021): video How to requests books, book chapters and Interlibrary Loan titles during the 2020/2021 academic year. These are no longer the only ways to get books--the Dean's message, above, tells you about other ways to do so (including just going to the library, finding the book, and checking it out). But these methods will also still work. 

Remote Library Access (2020/2021): video How to access journal articles, ebooks and databases if you are off campus. This information is still current, even though the title says 2020/2021

Off-Campus Google Scholar: video How to get to the full text of articles if you are using Google Scholar off campus. 

Searching the Library Homepage

The following video will show you how to use the search box on the MSU Libraries homepage. The same search box will search for books, journals, databases, and some articles (but the resources on the second page of this guide are better places to search for articles on specific topics). If you need books, journals, or other kinds of media, this is a good place to start.
