Distance Library Services: Home


Welcome to Distance Library Services at Memorial Library. At Memorial Library, we are dedicated to bringing our services and resources to you.


To begin using the Library’s resources you must first activate your MavMail account. You will need your MavMail username and password to login to the Library’s databases.

You will also need a MavCard. If you do not have a MavCard please request one. Without a MavCard you will be unable to borrow items from Memorial Library’s collections.

If you live more than 30 miles from the MSU campus we recommend that you sign up for Document Delivery. This service allows you to receive items from Memorial Library’s collections at your home address.
