Some materials cannot be checked out at all, including high-use periodicals published within the last ten years, Art journals, Reference material, Special Collections material, microforms, etc. Limiting use of these high demand materials to the library provides availability to all users. Reserve materials circulate to all borrowers for 2 hours, 24 hours, 3 days, or 7 days (as specified by the MSU instructor). NOTE: Reserve material with a "two hour no overnight" loan period is library-use only. Policies differ in some areas and in some branches.

Loan periods for most other types of library material are shown below:

Borrowers Most Books Dissertations, Theses Bound Periodicals Browsing, Careers, Travel, Children's, Business Popular, Business Audio CDs, Records, Videos, DVDs
MSU Graduate Students, Faculty, and Staff 180 days 180 days 21 days 21 days 7 days
