Materials the Dickinson County Library does not own may be borrowed from other library systems via the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Service.
The first place to check for items is the Card Catalog
to find a listing of the materials that the Dickinson County Library owns. If your inital search is not successful, try to expand your search to ALL (see below) as this will allow you to search the many libraries in the Superiorland Library Cooperative.
If your search is successful and you find the item you are looking for is owned by another library, you can place a hold and the item will be sent to your local branch for pick up.
If your search is not successful, you may expand your search to all participating libraries in Michigan through MeLCat
. MeLCat is the Michigan eLibrary Catalog. If you find the item, you may place a hold and it will be sent to your local branch for pick up.
Some items may not be available through either source or a library may not allow holds. If you cannot place a hold on an item, contact the library to have a staff member fill out a request slip.
