MeLCat Interlibrary Loan Borrowing Resumes


MeLCat has resumed borrowing privileges. Available materials may be limited as not all Michigan libraries are participating yet. 

MeLCat lets you search most of the public and academic libraries in Michigan and request to have items marked 'Available' delivered to your home library. Requests are free and anyone with a CPL card is eligible. Patrons who use MeLCat interlibrary loan agree to abide by its policies.

Books go out for 28 days and the majority of audiovisual items for 14 days. In most cases, materials with a 28 day loan period may be renewed using My Account or by calling the Checkout Desk. Renewals are one time only for three weeks and may be denied if there's a hold on the item at the loaning library. Note that MelCat items are not automatically renewed before they are due.
