What is CatSearch?

CatSearch is the MSU Library's discovery platform that provides a single access point to many of the Library's print and electronic resources including journal articles, books, newspapers, videos, government documents, images, music scores, archival material, maps, tech checkouts, and more.

From your search results, you can get the full text of articles, see if a book is on the shelf, place holds, or submit requests to borrow items from other Montana academic libraries.
