    Note: Library Search is new as of May 19, 2015. We are working to transition Guest Borrower and Kalamazoo College user accounts to the new system. Guest Borrowers and Kalamazoo College affiliates can continue to borrow materials, but you may be unable to log into your Library Search account to view and renew checkouts for a few weeks while we make necessary adjustments. Please contact the library at the numbers listed below for renewals and other assistance with your Library Search account. 
  • Course Reserves: Access items set aside for your courses
  • Interlibrary Loan: Access items borrowed from other libraries
  • MyMeL: Access items borrowed through MeLCat
