J. Robert Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library

Beginning August 22nd at 7:00 am, MeLCat will undergo a software upgrade. During the upgrade, users will be unable to place new MeLCat requests or directly search MeLCat. For assistance please contact ill@mtu.edu or call 7-3207.

Once the upgrade is completed, likely after a few hours, this notice will be removed.

The Van Pelt and Opie Library is live with our new library system. The new system consolidates our Search function and our Catalog into one tool. Use the Search tab above to locate all materials and resources available through the library. For detailed help on how to use the new system, visit our New Library System Guide or Ask Us.
