More than 300 editions have been placed in the circulating collection of the MSU Library and are readily available for check-out by searching the catalog and browsing the Library's shelves.
In order to make copies of John Grisham international titles widely available, more than 1400 copies have been cataloged for the John Grisham International Collection. Copies in this collection are available for check-out by request at the Access Services desk or through interlibrary loan request.
For the most part, one copy of each edition found in the John Grisham International Collection has been cataloged for the Special Collections Department. These copies may be used in the Special Collections Department only.
Additional titles will be added to the John Grisham International Collection as they become available.
