MeLCat Celebrates Its 10 Year Anniversary!

MeLCat Celebrates 10 Years!
MeL is the Michigan eLibrary, a 24/7 online library for Michigan residents.

Van Wylen Library has over 600,000 items. Using MeLCat increases the number of items available to you to over 45 million. You can get items from all types of libraries – from public to large academic institutions. MeLCat is a great resource for research materials as well as non-academic, popular books, music and movies.

Van Wylen Library has participated in MeLCat since June 2005. *In that period of time, Hope College has lent and borrowed over 88,000 books, DVDs and CDs!*

You can get books, CDs and DVDs delivered right to Van Wylen from over 400 other Michigan libraries. Search for your item at http://mel.org/melcat, click on the “Get this from MeLCat” button, select Hope College from the drop down list, enter your 1Hope username (without @hope.edu) and password, and the item will be delivered to the library in about a week.

If you haven’t yet used this great service and have questions the Research Help Desk staff will be glad to assist you!
