Many students said the current
MIRLYN is difficult to use, and that it
could be greatly improved.
"I think it's kind of confusing when
you get to the first page to know where
you're supposed to go. If I hadn't taken
research classes, I wouldn't know
where to go for things like PsycINFO,"
LSA senior Payal Patel said, referring
to one of the library's databases.
One of the biggest complaints of
students is the difficulty of searching
for articles through all of the separate
databases. "It's so hard to use. It's hard
to find things if you want journal arti-
cles as opposed to books," LSA senior
The Michigan Daily - Monday, February 16, 2004 - 7A
Mike Levy said.
The Implementation Steering Com-
mittee which will set up the new MIR-
LYN hopes to solve these problems
with the new software.
Additionally, such a large research
university needs a system that will
allow researchers to do more complex
searches, MacAdam said.
"One of the most important
improvements for scholarly research is
the ability to display records in the ver-
nacular of more than 20 languages,
including Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew,
Arabic and Korean," she said.
The Implementation Steering Com-
mittee has been working for two years to
select an appropriate system. They
signed a contract with vendor Ex Libris
in 2002 to adopt the same system that is
used at large research institutions such
as Harvard University, the Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology and the
University of California, she said.
The Implementation Steering Com-
mittee also wants to make the transi-
tion as easy as possible for students
and researchers, MacAdam said.
"The switch to production date is
July 6, 2004. The date was picked very
consciously because it's a time of rela-
tive peace on campus, so if anything
unexpected occurs we will have time
to deal with it well before fall,"
MacAdam said. "We're going to teach
classes on the new MIRLYN, provide
handouts and online help through our
chat reference service 'Ask Us Now.'"'

same-sex marriage should be left up to
the states, while U.S. Rep. Dennis
Kucinich of Ohio and the Rev. Al
Sharpton support same-sex marriage
and full benefits for gay couples.
"I don't think Kerry is the best
Democratic candidate to represent
the LGBT community. I'm glad he
supports civil unions, but the ideal
candidate would be someone who
totally supports equal rights," said
MBA student Marisa Uchin, co-pres-
ident of Open For Business, a group
for gay students in the Business
School. "It's hard to say who would
be a better candidate than Kerry
because the only person who sup-
ports total equality for the LGBT
community is Kucinich, and he's not
a realistic candidate."
Kucinich is currently sixth in num-
ber of delegates won.
On several other important gay
issues, Kerry's views have been better
received among the LGBT community.
He opposed former President Bill
Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" poli-

"The T-shirts are (anonymous) but they are also a loud
and strong testament to the fact that these horrible things
really do happen," she said.
Co-sponsored by the University's Sexual Assault Preven-
tion and Awareness Center, the shirts will be donated to a
national organization called The Clothesline Project.
The Vagina Monologues was produced and performed
in two shows yesterday by a group of students involved in
this year's V-Day Campaign. The show ran for the fourth
year in a row at the Power Center.
Ninety percent of the proceeds will go to SAFE House,
a domestic violence shelter in Ann Arbor, and the Bat-
tered Women's Clemency Project, a group that prepares
and files clemency petitions for women who have been
the michigan daily
imprisoned for killing their abusers.
The remaining 10 percent of the profits will be donat-
ed to Casa Amiga, an international organization chosen
by Ensler that investigates the deaths of hundreds of
women in Juarez, Mexico, who have disappeared and
then been found murdered days later.

incident warrants further investigation. He added that the
police officers distributed MIP citations because those
were the crimes they saw on arrival.
"These are kids fighting between fraternities. It's child-
ish nonsense, and we have more important crimes to pur-
sue," Seyfried said. "It would be a tremendous expenditure
of resources that we don't have."
cy regarding gays in the military, and
he supports adoption by gay men and
women. He also hopes to expand fed-
eral hate crimes legislation and was
one of the original sponsors of the
Hate Crimes Prevention Act.
"Since the day John Kerry started
his campaign in the Senate, he has
made LGBT rights part of his plat-
form because he feels they are
essential to making America live up
to its dream of equality for all," said
LSA junior Paul Spurgeon, a mem-
ber of the University's Stonewall
Democrats and chair of Students for
Kerry. "Kerry has shown as a Viet-
nam veteran that people should not
be threatened by members of the
military serving openly and that het-
erosexuality is not something
required. On the issue of adoption,
his message is one of understanding
and compassion, in which the Amer-
ican people define what a family is,
not the government."
While not all members of the LGBT
community believe that Kerry is the best
candidate to represent them, many feel
that any candidate would better promote
equality for gays than President Bush.
"Any of the remaining Democratic
candidates will be an advocate for
LGBT Americans and will present a
clear alternative to President Bush;"
said LSA senior Ken Nadolski, chair
of the Stonewall Democrats.
