Welcome to the library!

Welcome to the M State library! We're here to help and support you during your time at M State with everything from research help, tutoring, finding a great book to read or locating the right person on campus if we cannot help. We strive to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment committed to embracing, nurturing and developing independent learners. 

Resource links

M State LibGuides: LibGuides

LibGuides are developed by the College Librarian to help students, faculty and staff find library and online resources for their courses more easily. M State’s LibGuides also feature curated collections of links to open educational resources (OERs). Students and faculty can request the creation of new guides for courses or specific research topics by reaching out to M State library staff.

Search Databases: A-Z Database List

Find articles, videos, eBooks and more in our database collection. M State students should be able to access databases from off-campus by logging into SpartanNet first or entering your StarID and password when prompted. 

Search the Library Collection: Catalog search

Look for books or articles available at M State libraries or state-wide. Place requests for books held by other libraries by signing in with your StarID and password and filling out the request form.
