About MNLINK

People across Minnesota use MNLINK to request materials not available at their local library. Because there are fewer staff working in library spaces, and some libraries are quarantining materials, requests may take longer to fill.

MNLINK is a statewide system that serves as a discovery and interlibrary loan interface for library patrons and staff. Through our participating libraries, patrons have easy access to the catalogs of most libraries in Minnesota. The system also provides access to electronic resources that are available to Minnesotans. This includes electronic journals, images, and ebooks as well as access to the physical books that are held in libraries.
