Our New Interlibrary Loan Service

Image: MeL Logo

The Library is happy to announce that we are now participating in the Michigan eLibrary Catalog (MeLCat). MeLCat is a state-wide shared catalog where you can search the holdings of all participating libraries throughout Michigan and place your own requests for items you can't find in our library. Start searching right now at http://elibrary.mel.org/search.

You can also see what items you've requested on the MeL pages: https://elibrary.mel.org/patroninfo.

If an item you are looking for is not in MeLCat, we can still try to get it for you. Please ask for assistance at any service desk, call the Reference Desk at the Main Branch in Coldwater (517-278-2341, ext. 17), or use our online form.

Interlibrary Loan Service


We are in the process of joining the statewide ILL network, MeLCat. We should have this transition completed by the new year. In the meantime, we will be unable to offer ILL service at this time.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but we're sure you'll love the improved service you get once we're part of MeLCat.

Ancestry is Back!


By popular demand we have purchased the Ancestry database for our patrons. Access is in-library only. Users at home can still use HeritageQuest.
