MI Library Inventory List

Welcome to the MI Library's online Inventory catalog! Here you will find a detailed list of our collection of Electric, Acoustic, and Bass guitars as well as our pedals, microphones, and other musical equipment.

All of these items are available free for check out at the library front desk provided you bring a valid form of government identification. It can be a passport, drivers license, or any other government issued ID with your name on it. We will hold on while you have items checked out.

The check out time for Guitars, Basses, and all other equipment is 2 hours. If you need it for longer you may bring it back to the desk and request a renewal. If know ahead of time that you need to check something out late at night and the library is closed, you may fill out an Overnight request form on the Library homepage. Please fill the form out beforehand at least 24-hours before you need it so that your request will be reviewed and approved the Library Director.


If you are unable to return a piece of equipment to the Library before we close at 8pm, please leave it down stairs with the McCadden Security desk (not the main front door desk) or if you have a locker on campus you may leave it there.
