MeLCat – A Statewide Resource Sharing System
How does MeLCat work?
- A MeLCat ID is needed to search and request materials through MeLCat.

- Titles published within the current year searched are not available through MeLCat.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
In addition to MeLCat, TADL also offers a formal Interlibrary loan (ILL) service for registered TADL cardholders in good standing. Interlibrary loans can be requested at any service desk at any TADL location, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 231-932-8502. Non-residents of the TADL taxing district (GT County, Elmwood, Almira, Inland Townships) are assessed a non-refundable $5 fee. Should the lending institution assess a fee to TADL, this charge will be passed on to the borrower unless you have indicated that you do not wish us to borrow from institutions that charge a fee. Typically, academic libraries or those that make photocopies for us are the only institutions that charge a fee. Please contact us prior to placing your request if you have any questions or concerns.
