To streamline support requests and better serve member libraries, the MSC staff utilizes an online "Help Desk" ticket system. Every support request is assigned a unique ticket number which can be used to track the progress and responses online. The ticket system maintains complete archives and history of all support requests. A valid email address is all that is required to submit a ticket.

Take the time to view the  Knowledge Base in the MSC Frequently Asked Questions to see if an answer already exists for your question.
