Finding Books

For books and documents at FLITE, and for ebooks, use the Catalog tab on the FLITE home page.

Use MelCat to look up books in other Michigan Libraries. MelCat items will be delivered to the circulation desk and you will receive an Email when the items arrive. If materials you need aren't available via MelCat try InterLibrary Loan.


Off-Campus Access

You can access the databases and the full-text articles from off-campus. After you click on the name of the database, you will be asked for your username and password. If, for some reason, this method of access doesn't work, you can also access the databases with your ID barcode, last name, and pin number.
