DALNET Members Go Live in MeLCat

Participating DALNET libraries are now live for borrowing in MeLCat.  The DALNET office is pleased that this new resource sharing service is now available to DALNET patrons.

MeLCat will be working throughout the beginning of November to finish loading approximately 750,000 bibliographic records from DALNET libraries.  Once the records are loaded DALNET members will also participate in lending resources through this state-wide interlibrary loan service.

DALNET Educational Forums

The final DALNET Educational Forum of the year was held October 29th.  You can find the video presentation for this and other DALNET Educational Forums at http://www.dalnet.lib.mi.us/def.html.   We hope everyone found this series of forums, presented as a part of DALNET's 25th Anniversary year, useful and enlightening.
