Michigan eLibrary (including MeLCat)
Content/Description: Contains full-text articles, books, images, etc. and features an Inter-Library book loaning system with participating Michigan libraries.
If you are unable to locate the resource you need through MeLCat, there are other catalogs you can use to order books and media.
Materials in U.S. and international libraries. These can be requested through InterLibrary Loan.
The Holland public library is strong in more popular and local materials, so you may find resources there that we don't collect at Hope. Stop by the Van Wylen Circulation desk to learn how you can get a Herrick card to check out resources and access their digital collections.
When you see a library item in your search results that looks like it might be useful, go ahead and click on it to see the record for the item. There you can look at its table of contents, its bibliographic information, AND, you can look at its Subject Headings.
Subject Headings are like "tags' that describe what the book/resource is about. You can use these "tags" as links to find other resources that have that same "tag."
