Ferris Library for Information, Technology, and Education


MelCat is an acronym which is stands for the Michigan Electronic Library Catalog. It is a service of the Michigan Electronic Library, which is funded by state government. MELCAT is a statewide online catalog which links the catalogs of over 250 academic and public libraries within the state of Michigan.

As part of our interlibrary loan service, MelCat allows FLITE patrons to place online request for books and materials not available in FLITE.

Using MelCat is very simple. Search for an item in the FLITE catalog. If it is not found, click on the small red button "Search MelCat" which is found at the top of the screen. Once you find it there, click on the "Get This for Me" button and follow the instructions. You normally receive materials between 3-7 days. There are no fees associated with this service.
