[A close up of text on a white background  Description automatically generated]We heard you, Michigan!

We know that many libraries used the graphics from the "old" MeL site on their own webpages. Did you catch that we posted a full set of colorful, new web buttons to MeL.org that you can use going forward? What's more, we even provide the code to make it easy.

Check out how great it can look on Cadillac Wexford Public Library's<https://www.cadillaclibrary.org/eshelf-research> page. They've broken up resources by subject area with headers and included short descriptions of the eResources. And here's an example of a Kids page of MeL eResources from the White Lake Community Library<https://www.wlclib.org/children/homework-help>.

Where can you get the code? On MeL of course! Visit the Library Staff section and click on eResources Web Buttons<https://mel.org/library-staff/marketing-resources/eresource-web-buttons>. You'll have the option of either geo-IP URLs or Direct URLs. If the difference is still a little confusing, you can read more about it on MeL by following the path from Library Staff to either Direct URLs<https://mel.org/library-staff/operations/direct-urls> or Geo-IP URLs<https://mel.org/library-staff/operations/geo-ip-urls>. If you still have questions, visit the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services eResources Help page<https://www.mcls.org/mel/mel-databases/help/>, or contact the MeL Help Desk at meldatabaseshelp at mcls.org.

We are continually working to improve the experience that Michigan library staff have with the MeL website, MeLCat, and the individual eResources. This year we have made the new MeL web buttons available and improved the functionality of the Educators and eResources sections. Coming soon, you'll see a new set of promotional videos that we've created and members of the MeL team are going to Ipswitch, MA to work directly with EBSCO staff. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
