MichiCard and MeLCat Visiting Patron FAQ  PDF icon

The Michicard program ended on December 31, 2013. Michicard was a statewide resource sharing program administered by the Library of Michigan. The program has been eclipsed in terms of service and convenience by the Michigan eLibrary Catalog and Resource Sharing system (MeLCat). We encourage all libraries that participated in Michicard to become participating libraries in MeLCat. 

MeLCat is an online catalog and delivery service that allows patrons of hundreds of participating Michigan libraries to borrow materials - books, movies, CDs and more - from all over the state and have them delivered to their home library. The Michicard system required the patron to travel to the library owning the material to both check out and return items.  Libraries interested in offering the same in-library access that Michicard once provided are invited to join MeLCat and sign up as a library that offers Visiting Patron Service.
