Engineering Library Closing

The Engineering Library is scheduled to close permanently on Friday, December 18th, 2015. Any changes and progress will be posted on the MSU Library website:

Since this is an ongoing project, there will be times when the Engineering Library is noisy. Alternatively, quiet study and group study spaces are available in the Main, Math, and Business Libraries.

Beginning Fall Semester 2015, Engineering Course Reserves will be housed in and checked out from the Main Library Reserves (the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor).

Many Engineering books and the current issues of the print journals have been moved to the Main Library. Low-use materials will be moved to our Remote Storage facility. Daily runs to Remote Storage allow prompt retrieval of materials. Please see the library catalog for locations and availability.

The Engineering Machine Shop and Industrial Project Lab (IPL) are full services shops that provide the students with the needed tools and equipment to design and manufacture projects. Our mission is to provide a safe and productive environment for all Engineering students.

The Guided Learning Center (GLC) is a resource for students provided by the Diversity Programs Office in the College of Engineering.  The Academic Assistance program is designed to include supplemental instructions for first and second year students as well as for the more demanding and challenging courses in the engineering curriculum. This program is provided for engineering students at no cost.
