Newsletter images, and more about our collections.
|This image of robins is from John James Audubon’s The Birds of America. The eight-volume, double-elephant-folio edition was the first library acquisition authorized by the U-M Regents, and remains the single most valuable printed book in our collection. One of the eight volumes is always on rotating display in the Library's Audubon Room, with the page turned to a new image each week. You can view all of the volumes online via the PictureIt Rare Book Reader.|
This image of ships in a stormy sea was found in a file folder labeled "Museums Library," with no other identifying information except a name that appeared on one of the images—a piece of identifying information that, when entered into a search of Mirlyn, our catalog (narrowed by location to the Museums Library) yielded one title. A thumbnail look at the volume quickly confirmed the image source.
|The Music Library offers the U-M community access to a range of online music resources, including the Naxos Music Library's online listening collection of CDs.|
