Interlibrary Loan

Procedures for interlibrary loan

Most of the interlibrary loan between libraries in Michigan is now handled via the Michigan eLibrary Catalog (MeLCat) statewide resource sharing system.  Refer to this list of participating libraries in MeLCatMichigan-eLibrary-Logo.png

For materials that are not available via MeLCat or by loan from another library in the state, members may set up OCLC interloan service with the White Pine Library Cooperative via their "Peabody" system. 

MMLL PLan of Service excerpt:

3. Interlibrary Loan/ILS: MMLL will lead member libraries by assisting them with the technology and procedures for patron-initiated interlibrary loan via the statewide MeLCat resource sharing system. MMLL will assist members with ILS technology and shared systems as needed. Interlibrary loan service for materials not found in MeLCat will be provided via an arrangement with the White Pine Library Cooperative for a per item request fee billed directly to MMLL members on a quarterly basis.
