What the library offers

Editor's Note: Today The Michi-
gan Daily debuts a new weekly rotat-
ing item called Questions on Campus.
Every Tuesday, we'll answer ques-
tionsfrom students about the Univer-
sity. Topics will range from academic
policies, campus life and anything in
between. To submit a question you
want answered, e-mail questions@
Q: There are many libraries
across campus, but what are some
of the specific resources offered
by libraries that can be most help-
fulfor students?
With more than 20 different
libraries in 12 campus buildings, stu-
dents may be overwhelmed by the
vastness of University resources and
may not know where to start. And
while many students study in at least
one University library, especially
during midterms and finals, students
leave many resources untapped.
Many University tools allow stu-

dents to fulfill their library needs
online without stepping out their
MLibrary, the University
Library's online resource, gives stu-
dents the option to complete their
research online - eliminating the
task of searching through library
catalogues and archives in person.
MLibrary also allows students
to access a plethora of online jour-
nals free of charge. In November,
the website was updated and now
combines the browsing and search-
ing features of the site into a single
Additionally, delivery services for
hard copies of books are available for
students - allowing them to pick up
the materials at the checkout coun-
ters at the libraries instead of search-
ing through the stacks.
Another service is Mirlyn Get
This, which provides a delivery ser-
vice from one library on campus to

another at a library pickup location
of the student's choice.
If a student encounters difficulty
finding the necessary materials from
an on-campus library, the Univer-
sity also uses an Interlibrary Loan
system, which allows the libraries
to borrow materials from a library at
another university or institution.
But the libraries on campus aren't
purely for academic needs. Students
can also go to some libraries for
entertainment purposes like play-
ing computer and video games. The
Shapiro Undergraduate Library is
also home to Askwith Media Library,
where students can rent movies and
television shows free of cost.
In the basement of the Duderstadt
Library on North Campus, there is
also a Computer and Video Game
Archive, which offers a selection of
games ranging from 1970s classics to
new releases.

candidate to be
removed from ballot
- An international team of elec-
tion experts will recommend that
Haiti's government-backed candi-
date be eliminated from a presi-
dential runoff ballot due to strong
evidence of fraud in voting that led
to riots, according to a draft of the
report obtained yesterday by The
Associated Press.
The report by the organization
of American States team has not
been released publicly but officials
confirmed its conclusions. It was
to be presented to President Rene
Preval later yesterday, foreign and
Haitian sources confirmed.
The report's most important
conclusions are that the disputed
Nov. 28 vote should neither be
thrown out entirely nor recount-
ed, and that enough fraudulent or
improper ballots should be invali-
dated to drop governing-party
candidate Jude Celestin into third
place and out of the second-round
That would favor carnival sing-
er Michel "Sweet Micky" Mar-.
telly, a populist candidate who
was in third place and out of run-
off contention when results were
announced last month. Former
first lady and law professor Mir-
lande Manigat would remain in
first place. All the top candidates
would lose thousands of votes
under the team's recommenda-
Haitian electoral officials must
make the final decision on what to
do, but the OAS recommendations
could weigh heavily. The three top
candidates all believe they should
advance to a second-round vote if
not declared the winner outright.
Rioting broke out in several cit-
ies when the preliminary results
were announced, with Martelly's
supporters blocking streets and
demanding their candidate be
immediately named president.
The U.S. Embassy expressed
doubt over the results at the time,
saying they did not match observ-
ers' polling estimates that showed
Celestin in line to be eliminated.
The OAS report matches that

"After a thorough statistical
analysis ... the Expert Mission has
determined that it cannot support
the preliminary results ofthe pres-
idential elections released on Dec.
7,2010," the report said.
"Should this recommendation
be implemented, the position of
the candidate in third place (Mar-
telly) would change to second and
the candidate now in second place
(Celestin) would move to third," it
The AP obtained a copy of the
report, and a foreign official with
direct knowledge of the report
confirmed its conclusions. A sec-
ond foreign official said that the
report had been completed and
translated into French and that
the conclusion in the draft would
The sources spoke on condition
of anonymity because the report
had not been made public and was
not supposed to be discussed until
it was reviewed by Preval.
Some critics of the election say
the entire vote should be thrown
out because of rampant disorgani-
zation, fraud and instances of vio-
lence and voter intimidation.
Twelve of the 19 candidates,
including Manigat and Martelly,
joined together while polls were
still open to demand the vote be
tossed out. The front-runners
changed tune a day later after U.N.
and other officials informed them
they were expected to advance to
a runoff.
The Washington-based Center
for Economic and Policy Research,
a left-leaning think tank, said the
vote should be invalidated because
errors and fraud were too wide-
spread and the party of ousted
former President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide, who is still popular in
Haiti, was not allowed to partici-
"The OAS has abandoned any
professional standards by certi-
fying an election where nearly
three-quarters of registered voters
did not vote because the country's
most popular political party was
banned," said economist Mark
Weisbrot. "Given the massive
irregularities in that first round, it
is not even possible to determine
who the top two finishers were."
Celestin's campaign chief, Sen.

Joseph Lambert, said the cam-
paign would not commentbecause
it did not have a copy of the report.
The Martelly campaign also
declined comment, and a Manigat
spokesman did not return calls.
Preval was not expected to
respond publicly until after
Wednesday's one-year anniver-
sary of the earthquake that dev-
astated Port-au-Prince. An aide
declined comment.
The second round was origi-
nally scheduled for Jan. 16 but
was delayed in part because elec-
toral officials were waiting for the
results of the OAS review. Officials
have said the earliest it can be held
is next month.
The experts found that tens of
thousands more votes than previ-
ously thought should be discarded
because polling-place officials did
not follow procedures or because
of signs that tally sheets were
According to the review, Mar-
telly would end up in second place
with 22.2 percent after having
7,150 votes ruled invalid. Celestin
would drop to third place with 21.9
percent after losing 17,220 votes.
Manigat would remain in first
place with 31.6 percent after hav-
ing 13,830 of her votes thrown out.
The team included electoral,
technical and statistical experts
from the United States, France,
Canada, Jamaica and the OAS. It
reviewed a sample representing
roughly 16.9 percent of the votes
cast, along with ballot boxes and
bags, user access logs and other
The team said it decided not to
recommend holding a new vote
because "a new election would
involve more contests and can-
didacies than the evidence war-
A new election also would be
a burdensome expense for the
impoverished country, "subject the
Haitian people to a further lapse
in constitutional governance," it
The team also decided against
recommending a partial do-over
in "certain problematic locations"
or a nationwide recount.
Preval's term is scheduled to
end Feb. 7, but he could remain in
power until May because he was
inaugurated late in 2006.
