at the Core
A library is at the heart of every
great university. Quiet yet vibrant.
with intellectual activity, it
preserves the cumulative record of
speculation, scholarship, and ex-
pression generated throughout the
ages while also encouraging fresh
responses to experience and
knowledge. And it responds to
change within its own resources, as
well. Joining the traditional
medium of print over the past
century have been such advances as
microforms, photoduplication,
audio/visual media, electronic
storage, searching, and retrieval
systems, and interlibrary tele-
communications networks, all of
which reveal, and indeed often
generate, new possibilities for
scholarly activity. In any uni-
versity, in other words, the library
is part of a vital organism that finds
intellectual nourishment in new
resources and technologies, and in
new accomplishments.
The University of Michigan
Library has been growing and
changing for a century and a half.
Today its international reputation as
a major research facility is firmly
established. With some 6,000,000
volumes, 66,000 serials, bur-
geoning electronic systems, and
hundreds of talented staff members,
it serves the entire University with
a comprehensive body of collec-
tions and services. And as the fifth
largest academic library in the
nation, it stands as a leading
participant in interlibrary programs
for resource-sharing and preser-
When the first separate Uni-
versity Library building was erected
in 1883, it was deliberately situated
at the very center of the original
campus, where the Graduate Library
now stands, as a reminder to
students of its place in their
education. This brief overview can.
hardly do more than introduce new
students to our many facilities and
services. (Individual library units
and departments issue detailed
descriptions of their collections,
services, and operating hours.) But
we hope these pages suggest that
the University Library and its users
still stand together at the center of
the Michigan tradition of explor-
ation, discovery, and renewal.
