Enhanced Library Catalog

Library Services introduces an enhanced library catalog, a free service provided by our MnPALS library consortium.  The new interface offers a user friendly approach to discover books, videos, government documents and more.  Use the BOOKS search box in the center of the Library Services homepage to find library materials. Besides locating library items, new features in the enhanced catalog allow library users to:

  •          Conduct relevance searches like Google or JSTOR                      
  •          Text call numbers to cell phones
  •          Automatically generate APA or MLA citations
  •          Save records to “My Favorites”
  •          The “Narrow Search” bar to limit to subject, location, date, and more

Learn more about the interface with the MSU Library Catalog handout.  The traditional library catalog is also available by selecting the “Search Classic Library Catalog” link below the BOOKS search box.  If you have questions about the enhanced library catalog interface, visit the Memorial Library Reference Desk or contact a librarian using the Ask a Librarian service.
