Michigan eLibrary CatalogILLiad lets you get articles and books that we don’t have from other libraries. If MeLCat doesn’t have the resources you need, fill out a request through ILLiad. If you’re a first time ILLiad user, just fill out this form and you’ll be ready to get started! There is no charge for this service.


Important! If you are concerned that your loan or copy is taking longer than it should to arrive, do not send a new request without contacting our office first. Sending new requests causes confusion at both the borrowing and lending libraries. If you are concerned about your interlibrary loan transaction, please contact us for a status check.
