The Engineering and Transportation
Library is planning to vacate the Un-
dergraduate Library for a home on
North Campus, but may leave its books
behind, according to the Engineering
School dean.
A computer system will hopefully
replace the traditional book library,
Dean James Duderstadt said.
MARITA HOLLAND, head librarian
of the engineering library, said the
proposed computer system would allow
students and faculty to retrieve infor-
mation from terminals located in dorm
rooms and offices, making it a less
"location-dependent" library.

The new library would either be
housed in a building yet to be construc-
ted or in an existing building which
would require renovation, but Duder-
stadt said no specific location has been
chosen.
Holland said a use for the space that
would be left in the UGLi after the move
has not been found.
THE LIBRARY, including its
proposed computer system, will cost an
estimated $12 million, said Brad
Canale, director of corporate develop-
ment for the engineering school. The
entire cost will be met by funds from
private individuals and corporations.
Canale said a study is under way to

determine the feasibility of obtaining
funds, adding the study is "moving
more quickly than expected and smooth
as can be."
In addition to the new library, the
school is considering an instructional
center in the ground floor of the new
Dow Engineering Building on North
Campus. The center will include
classrooms, lecture halls, and com-
puter laboratories. The estimated cost,
$5.5 million, will also be raised through
private sources.
DUDERSTADT is also proposing a $2
million central computer system in ad-
dition to the library computer which
would be used to integrate the entire
school. Duderstadt said the central
system could disseminate information
to other parts of the University, the
country, and around the world.
The dean said two considerations the
school must keep in mind while
studying the proposals are keeping the
number of buildings to a managable
size, and making sure the number of
classrooms keeps up with the school's
increasing enrollment.
A few other universities around the
country are attempting to put together
similar libraries and instructional cen-
ters, Duderstadt said, but none of these

making the announcement. "The poten-
tial for new jobs for Michigan makes it
imperative that we move now in a
major effort to be at the forefront of
developments in the field."
Earlier this year, the High
Technology Task Force created the In-
dustrial Technology Institute (ITI) in
the Ann Arbor area to stimulate growth
of the state's robotics industry. ITI will
be closely affiliated with the Univer-
sity.

grant. In addition, MBI will be eligible

The Michigan Student Assembly
found itself in an awkward position
Tuesday night when it was asked to
reconsider an allocation it had made
earlier, on the grounds that it had been
excessive.
MSA had given a group called Student
Awareness the entire $800 it had asked
for, even though the group had not
requested money from any other sour-
ces, several assembly members
charged.
THE ALLOCATION, which represen-
ts 1 percent of MSA's total budget, was
given last week to the organization
which was formed to educate students
about campus issues, using banners,
flyers, and posters.
The money from MSA was to be used
to finance a diag board campaign the
group hoped to be in place by
Homecoming. The boards would
display large silkscreened murals ad-
dressing various issues.
When the possibility of reducing the
allocation was proposed to Student
Awareness representative Mary
Weisenbergpr, she blasted the idea,
saying the 8-foot screens necessary for
the project had already been ordered.
"I REALIZE you are a new assem-
bly, but what you just did should have
been discussed last week (when the
allocation was proposed)," Weisen-

berger told MSA Tuesday night. "I
don't have time to run around looking;
for additional funding."
Rich Layman, a student at the
meeting, said that "as a constituent,
I'm shocked that you (the assembly)
would spend 1 percent of the assembly's
budget on such a poorly planned:
event."
MSA members finally agreed that
although they would give the project;
the $800 it had requested, it would ask
Student Awareness to seek alternative
sources for the money. MSA would then
be reimbursed for the amount.
Assembly member Ben Davis
apologized to Weisenberger for the
"ineptness of the assembly," and;
member Rick James also expressed
regret for the error.
In other business, Jon Soglin annouh-
ced that 1,300 people have been
registered under the MSA-sponsored
Voter Registration Drive. MSA
president Amy Moore noted that
previous drives had netted about 600
signatures.

Duderstadts
... new facilities a model for others
are on such a large scale. He said the
Engineering School library is currently
the largest technical library in the
nation.
D uderstadt said he believes "an un-
derstanding of technology is going to be
essential to survive in the future," and
the new facilities will act as a "model of
how technology can be applied."
