Interlibrary Loan and MeL

Order Materials from Other Libraries

If Walsh library does not own an item, it might be found in one of the following locations.  We are happy to locate and source your research materials.  There is no charge to the patron for these services.  Due dates and renewals are decided by the lending library.


Patrons can borrow books from participating libraries through MeL, the Michigan eLibrary.  Although MeL provides access to audio books, music, and movies, Walsh College Library only borrows and lends books. Order a book through MeL.

Books and articles not owned by Walsh College Library can be borrowed through Inter-Library Loan (ILL).  Before requesting a loan, a student should seek the assistance of a reference librarian to make sure all Walsh Library resources have been checked.
