Interlibrary Loan, Melcat, Other UM Campuses

What if the Mardigian Library doesn't have the resource I need? You can request items from other libraries using the library's following three loan services. There are no fees for UM-Dearborn students, faculty, or staff to place these requests.

  1. Get This - Borrow from other University of Michigan Campuses
    First, check the UM Ann Arbor catalog and use Get This, to request books and other media from UM-Ann Arbor and UM-Flint to be delivered to the Mardigian Library.

  2. MeLCAT - Borrow from other libraries in Michigan
    Second, try MeLCAT, the Michigan eLibrary, a 24/7 online library for Michigan residents. MelCAT allows you to order books, audio books, music, movies, and other materials and have them delivered to the Mardigian Library.

  3. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) - Borrow from other libraries across the world
    Third, use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to find books, dissertations, microforms, or periodical articles.
