MI Library Program

MichiCard ends December 31, 2013
MI Library Program begins January 1, 2014

The Wayne State University Library System participates in MI Library program, the statewide reciprocal borrowing program that provides

  • in-person access to the resources and information housed in libraries throughout Michigan
  • guest borrowing privileges at a growing number of public and academic libraries throughout the state.

The list of participating libraries includes a growing list of public libraries throughout the State Of Michigan as well as the Main Library and branches of the Detroit Public Library, an important advantage for faculty and staff who are non-residents of Detroit and would otherwise have to pay a fee.

To get a MI Library sticker, present your OneCard at any service desk in the University Libraries Extension. We'll verify that you are a current faculty, staff or enrolled student, and if you are a borrower in good standing with the University Libraries, you will be given a MI Library sticker to apply to your Onecard. Take your Onecard to any participating library and you will be given guest* borrower privileges to that library.

*The lending policies of the participating library vary from place to place, so it is always best to call ahead if you are looking for access to a specific collection or service. Participating libraries normally lend only printed materials to MI Library borrowers. Some libraries may loan other types of resources if their local library policies permit. Material borrowed through this program should be returned to the library from which they were borrowed, and local library policies and late fees apply.
