Prepare for Temporary MeLCat Unavailability

For technical reasons, MeLCat will be temporarily unavailable for new requests beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 18. Library users will be able to pick up MeLCat materials until Wednesday, Dec. 2. The ability to place requests will be restored by Friday, Dec. 11. MeLCat materials can be returned at any time.

State Librarian Randy Riley knows the importance of MeLCat to Michigan residents. “We know that any service interruption is an inconvenience. Because of that, we’ve timed the needed work to occur during a period when MeLCat requesting has historically been the lowest. In the long run, this change will truly benefit Michigan libraries and library users.”

More information is available at http:// elibrary.mel.org/screens/melmove.html.

Please plan ahead and place your MeLCat requests prior to Nov. 18!

Funding for MeL is provided in part by the state of Michigan through the Library of Michigan. Additional project support comes from the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) via the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

For assistance using MeL, please call the St. Charles District Library at 989-865-9451
