How Do I Find materials not in the Sierra Encore Catalog?

Finding Materials not in the Sierra ENCORE Catalog

If you have searched the Sierra ENCORE Catalog and can’t find what you are looking for, you can check MnLINK.  Click MnLink on the Sierra ENCORE Catalog menu bar.  This opens a window to the MnLINK catalog.  If you are requesting materials, you must click the <Sign In> button.  You’ll be prompted to enter your 14 digit library card number.  (You do not need to enter a PIN or password.) Click the <Sign In> button again and you’ll be returned to the basic search page.  When you find the title you want to request, click the <Get It> button in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Then click the Request via InterLibrary Loan link.  Find the Pickup Location box, and select a pickup library from the list of Traverse des Sioux member libraries and click the red <Submit> button.  The system assigns an ILL tracking number.  You can track the status of your request by signing into MnLINK at any time and clicking the My Requests link.  Click the Sign out link on the far left column to end your session.  The TdS member library that you selected for pickup will notify you when your ILL item has been received.
