The University Library system includes the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, departmental libraries, and many special libraries. Other major collections on campus include the William L. Clements Library of Americana, the Bentley Historical Library, the Law Library, and the School of Business Administration Library. In addition, the Gerald R. Ford Library, located on north campus contains papers of former U.S. President Gerald R. Ford along with audio-visual materials and memorabilia. The A. Alfred Taubman Medical Library, located on the Medical Campus, supports the teaching and research of the medical staff. The Shapiro Undergraduate Library serves primarily the undergraduates of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.

The University libraries are open to members of the faculty, and staff, under regulations set forth by the separately administered libraries and in “University Library Rules and Policies” which is available from the library on request.

In addition, many departments maintain their own technical holdings. Check with your supervisor to see if your unit does, and what the regulations are for access.
