MeL is a statewide service of the Library of Michigan , an agency of the Michigan Department of Education. The Library of Michigan contracts with MCLS and partners with a number of Michigan organizations and institutions to provide MeL services. MeL is made possible by grant funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the State of Michigan through the Library of Michigan.
MCLS staff provide support and training for two components of MeL: MeLCat & the MeL Databases. MCLS staff also manages RIDES, the statewide delivery service. If your library is looking for ways to promote MeL, those resources can be found in the MeL.org Promotions Gallery.
