University President Harold
Shapiro, however, said last night he
thought the issue was a "misunder-
standing."
"We announced the plan back in
May and June, before the tuition issue
was brought up. We only passed the
formal decision in September. I'm not
concerned."
Naftaly said he understands the fee
had been under consideration for
some time and that the revenues

purchase new computer equipment.
He said he sees a distinction between
"trying to raise something that pays
for existing costs" and a fee for "an
additional service or new service."
"We agree computer literacy is im-
portant," he said.
But "I have not seen the data yet. I
was concerned enough to call them

Library hi
(Continued from Page 1)
1,000 researchers have made trips to
the library.
"I was just there yesterday," said Ed
Bray, an engineering school senior.
"It's on North Campus. You can't
miss it. It's the building with the huge
doors."
The library boasts a large main-
floor lobby and conference rooms.
There is also an office for Ford which
contains furniture from his
congressional office.
THE LIBRARY opened in 1982 and
cost $4,289,669 - an amount paid for
by 14,000 individual private con-
tributors.

elps Ford researchers

Inside the library's research vaults
are over 15 million pages of materials,
275,000 still photographs, and 7,000
volumes of government and trade
publications which highlight Ford's
career as a public servant.
The library is one of two presiden-
tial libraries located on a university
campus.'Former President Lyndon B.
Johnson's library is located on the
campus of the University of Texas at
Austin.
THE FORD library is different
from other presidential complexes.
Traditionally, a presidential library
and presidential museum are located
in one place, but Ford's library is

located here while the Ford Museum
is in Grand Rapids.
The library, which is operated by
the University, is open to the public.
Researchers work there with an ar-
chivist who helps locate information.
Library Director Don Wilson
estimates that 55 percent to 60 percent
of the visits to the library this year
have been made by students.
AND THAT number is rising.
"There is a 20 percent increase in
the use of the library each year, and
(the library staff is) trying to reach out
to students and faculty and encourage
them to use our resources in their
research," commented Wilson.
