Request Macalester items via Interlibrary Loan, not CLICnet

Beginning June, 2014, Macalester College Library materials can no longer be requested via CLICnet, but instead should be requested via Interlibrary Loan.

Recently, the CLIC library consortium conducted a process to select a new integrated library system. During this process, Macalester selected a different vendor. We cannot integrate Macalester’s system into ours, so Macalester’s content will no longer be findable via CLICnet. If you find an item you want from Macalester, request it via Interlibrary Loan.

Via Interlibrary Loan, we don’t anticipate too much of a difference in the time frame for when you receive items held at Macalester. Journal articles and book chapters typically come via email within two business days; physical materials should also arrive within two business days.

If you have any questions about this, or if you need help requesting items, contact a librarian.
