Visiting Other Libraries

EMU students, faculty, and staff have options for borrowing materials in-person at other libraries.

These reciprocal borrowing arrangements also allow patrons from other institutions that participate in these programs to borrow materials from the EMU Library.

MeLCat Visiting Patron

This service allows EMU faculty, staff, and currently registered students to borrow materials in person at participating Michigan libraries. Look for libraries with a Yes under Visiting Patron in this list, and call in advance to find out if the library is currently open and allowing visiting patrons.

Reciprocal Borrowing at the University of Michigan Libraries

The University of Michigan Libraries have suspended reciprocal borrowing due to the pandemic. This means EMU faculty, students, and staff cannot visit these libraries in person to borrow materials.

MelCat is the best option for requesting books not available at the EMU Library. MelCat services resume September 21.
