There are two ways to get books from UM-Ann Arbor and UM-Flint libraries:
1. Click the "Get this" button in the UM-Ann Arbor/Flint catalog entry, then choose "UM-Dearborn Mardigian Library" to have the book sent to the Mardigian Library for pick up.
2. UM-Dearborn students staff can use their MCard to check out books from the Thompson Library at UM-Flint as well as most UM-Ann Arbor libraries — after registering at the library's circulation desk.
The Michigan Electronic Library (MeL) includes materials from libraries throughout Michigan, but not UM-Ann Arbor. You request the book and it is delivered to the Mardigian Library (usually in 3 to 5 days).
The Mardigian Library has agreements with several college and university libraries in the Detroit area where you can go to check out books. If any of these are convenient to you, you might get the book you want faster by visiting that library. Note: Check the link above to see what you need (MCard, proof of current registration, or Infopass) before visiting the library.
