The libraries are tackling the
issue through education, said Ste-
phen Hipkiss, University Librar-
ies facilities manager. Blue signs
with crime information have been
placed strategically around the
libraries to remind students of
the risk involved in leaving their
But Brown said the tactic does not
always work. One stolen laptop, she
said, was left unattended next to one
of the cautionary blue signs.
Library staff members have also
begun to approach students who
leave their items behind, but Hip-
kiss said the library staff can only
patrol limited ground. For example,
the majority of thefts happen in the
stacks, where supervision is scarce.
Even with the informational cam-
paign and increased patrols, students
still are not completely absorbing the
message. A quick walk through the
Graduate Library revealed two lap-
tops left unattended in the densely
occupied reading room.
There was also a wave last winter
of similar laptop thefts, Hipkiss said.
After DPS made arrests, the thefts
stopped almost overnight, only to
reemerge this September.
Laptop thefts have also been
occurring outside of the libraries,
especially in on-campus housing.
DPS has reported four laptop bur-
glaries this month in its daily brief-
One was recovered when a fresh-
man awoke to two men in his dorm
room trying to steal his laptop. The
confrontation culminated with the
student recovering his laptop after a
foot chase through the wooded area
outside of Bursley Residence Hall.
The other laptop burglaries
occurred in Bursley, Baits and
Northwood Apartments, where
people left their laptops out on a
desk with their doors unlocked or
open, Brown said.
"It would be wise to put one's lap-
top away so it is not visible, like (in)
a locked desk drawer - certainly
somewhere out of obvious sight,"
She suggested not opening doors,
to the residence halls for strangers,
even if it is impolite.
"It's hard to criticize letting people
in, but the flipside is that we're let-
ting people in who perpetrate these
crimes," Brown said.

While University techniques are fast
enough to copy one book per hour, Google's
processes are even more sophisticated.
"Imagine something as fast as using a
camera," Wilkin said. "You open a book,
take a picture, turn the page, take another
picture, and so on."
Google's methods also protect fragile
books because the process does not open
books wide when copying.
And Google's digital captures are of qual-
ity akin to the originals.
"Google produces high-fidelity, high-
resolution, large-scale capture in such a
way that the images are a nearly perma-
nent surrogate for most print materials,"
These procedures make millions of
books, long unavailable to the public,
accessible to anyone with an Internet

said they hoped to hold Dearborn admin-
istrators accountable for deficits of at least
$300,000 in CASL and $1.3 million in the
School of Management. At least three dozen
sections are slated to be cut, and faculty jobs
may be in jeopardy.
"This decision really hurts," said Patri-
cia Hartshorn, a 13-year natural sciences
adjunct lecturer on the Dearborn campus. "I
love teaching here, and I may not be able. to
do that next year. (The) administration needs
to find ways to cut back that don't affect stu-
The afternoon rally culminated with
a march to the administration building.
Accompanied by chanting students, Hal-
loran hand-delivered a letter containing
LEO's alternative cost-saving suggestions to
Dearborn Chancellor Daniel Little's office.
Although Little was out of town on a busi-
ness trip, his secretary accepted the letter on
LEO made six suggestions in an
attempt to dissuade administration from
consolidating courses to save money.
The proposed alternatives' included
saving money on campus utilities by
instituting four 10-hour workdays dur-
ing summer months; instituting a 5- or
10-percent pay decrease for top admin-
istration officials; postponing the
search for a new provost; and finding
new ways to create an economic part-
nership with the Ann Arbor campus.
David Hecker, president of the Michigan
Federation of Teachers, spoke to attendees
on the historical importance of the Dearborn
"I want to thank you for standing up (for
the cause)," Hecker said. "UM-D exists for
one reason ... to ensure students get a qual-
Students expressed concern with the pos-
sibility that the cuts would affect their ability
to graduate on time.
"The students are in a dire situation," said
Amanda Bassett, a junior majoring in psy-
chology. "If we don't stand up now, who's
going to stand up when future cutbacks are
Circulating about the crowd were petitions
to be signed by those who agree with LEO's
desire to reverse the University's decision.
Halloran said she was thrilled with the
turnout and vigor of the attendees.
"This was an extremely exciting event on
campus," she said. "I think it's an amazing
indication of how upset students really are."
Outgoing Dearborn Provost Robert
Simpson stopped outside the adminis-
tration building to talk with LEO mem-
bers and students after the rally ended.
"Our job is to support the learning
environment as best we possibly can
with the resources allocated," Simpson
said. "We have not impeded our stu-
dents from graduation."
But the provost's answers did not sit well
with LEO members. "I don't think he was
looking at the areas where administration
has failed to take care of the problems," Hal-
Kelly Al-Hajal, a senior majoring in com-
munications, said the situation was a black
eye for the University. "It's an insult to the
teachers and students to be treated like this,"
he said. "I hope (the) administration listens
to the suggestions. It's just ugly."

$100,000 between two researchers from different
The grants will encourage collaboration between
fields as diverse as molecular biology and engineering,
said Arvan, who will serve as the center's interim direc-
Arvan estimates that more than 50 researchers are
currently working in the MCDC alone, and about six
new researchers may be recruited to work in the new
the michigan daily',
The MCDC's headquarters will eventually be the
University's new Kellogg Eye Center, which will be
near the medical campus. The center will not have a
physical facility until then.
One way the center is already encouraging coopera-
tion between researchers is through the Grand Rounds
Lecture Series. The lecture series will act as a forum
at which state-of-the-art diabetes research can be pre-
sented along with research on more specific topics.
The series will begin next January and will offer one
lecture per month.
