March 30, 2020 Lending Library Update
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the MSOE Model Lending Library will suspend operations at least through the end of May. We will update as more information becomes available. Stay safe!
The MSOE Model Lending Library is a collaborative project of the MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling (CBM), 3D Molecular Designs (3DMD), and the MSOE Walter Schroeder Library. The Library makes available, for short-term loan, many of the physical models produced by the CBM and 3DMD.
Please Note: Due to a large increase in use, it is strongly recommended that you schedule models well in advance of when you want to use them.
These suitcases contain one copy of each of several models, suitable for use in lab stations or for demonstration purposes. Click on the images below for an inventory of the models and documents included in each suitcase, and to request a model.

If you find a model in our Model Gallery that is not currently available through the Model Lending Library, please contact Margaret Franzen, firstname.lastname@example.org or (414) 277-2806 to inquire about borrowing the model. We are delighted to loan most of these models for educational purposes when they are not needed in our programs!
Models loaned through the MSOE Lending Library are available for purchase through 3D Molecular Designs.
This unique Model Lending Library is jointly supported by MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling, the MSOE Walter Schroeder Library and 3D Molecular Designs. Some of the models in the Lending Library were developed with funds from NIH-SEPA and NSF-CCLI awards.
