Books at Other Libraries

Books not owned by the EMU Library or EMU Library books already checked out can be borrowed from other libraries.

Requesting Books from Other Libraries

First, see if your book is available through MeLCat.

Then, if you cannot get the book through MeLCat, request it through ILLiad (our interlibrary loan service).

History Book Call Numbers

Library books are arranged by subject. If you would like to browse the reference books on the entry level or the circulating books on the third level, the call number list below can guide you to the correct call numbers.
