East wing of the main MSU Library on West Circle Drive
The MSU Library has a Special Collections Division, located on the lower level of the main Library. Special Collections holds rare and special printed materials which have been identified as needing special security, handling, and shelving. Some of the most well known collections include the Russel B. Nye Popular Culture Collection, the Veterinary Medicine Historical Collection, the Radicalism Collection, the Cookery Collection, and the Michigan Writers Collection. Special Collections materials may be used by MSU faculty, students, staff, and other qualified persons with appropriate identification (MSU ID or driver's license). Temporary permission may also be extended to local area high-school students engaged in school related projects; documentation from the appropriate teacher or school administrator is required. The website lists the hours of access to the Special Collections. There is also a website available to view items from the digital collections online.
