About CatSearch

What is CatSearch?

CatSearch is a simple and fast search engine that helps you discover relevant information on any topic from the MSU Libraries collections. It is the place to start your research in scholarly journal and newspaper articles, books, videos, maps, manuscript collections, music scores and more. From your search results, you can get the full text of articles or see if a book is on the shelf.

CatSearch is still growing, features continue to improve, and more content is being added regularly.

What does CatSearch find?

Numerous citations and full text scholarly materials that the MSU Libraries owns or provides access to are currently available in CatSearch. It searches most, but not all of our resources. If you are not finding what you expect or for a more comprehensive search, consult with your subject librarian who is prepared to assist you with other resources that are not included in CatSearch.
