Michigan summer heat getting you down?  Chill out at one of  Michigan’s  most beautiful beaches around!  Before you head out, be sure to bring along a selection of reading material.  The New York Times has a list of  73 Books to Read While the Sun is Out and the Day is Long. If we don’t have the title(s) you want, order your “beach reading” through RaiderLoan.

MeLCat Requesting

MeL logoDuring the latter part of this semester, MeLCat requests will be temporarily shut down due to server migration in Lansing.

  • If you are a MeLCat user, request titles before Tuesday November 17; you may start requesting titles again via MeLCat beginning December 12.
  • If you have MeLCat titles already checked out or due during this time frame, you should still return them to GRCC. If you need a renewal, go to [MyMeLCat].

You may place requests at any time by starting at the [RaiderLoan Document Delivery & Interlibrary Loan] Subject Guide to set up a RaiderLoan account. Setup only needs to be done once. After you’ve created a RaiderLoan account*, fill out and submit your requests.

*Tip: You must use your GRCC email address for all notifications and receipt of articles and book chapters in RaiderLoan. Please note, your RaiderLoan password is not the network password, so be sure to make the RaiderLoan password something you will remember.

MeLCat is the statewide union catalog and resource sharing service to share materials among all types of libraries in Michigan. GRCC has been a MeLCat partner since its inception.

For more information or assistance, contact Kathy Schoen at 616-234-3749 or kschoen@grcc.edu.
