You can search directly through MelCat and request materials from other libraries around the state. Usually, you will receive your requested materials within 5-7 business days. All you need is your name and sau id number. However, we would encourage you first search the SAU library catalog. If you do not find what you are looking for, you can click the MelCat icon within our catalog and it will automatically complete the search for you in Melcat. WATCH a short video tutorial on how to request books from MelCat.
