Located in the Current Periodicals Reading Room, this permanent exhibit highlights the work of faculty, research staff, and students of the U-M Natural Sciences departments and the School of Natural Resources and Environment. In order to be included in the exhibit, these members of the scientific community must be authors of books, ebooks, or have had articles featured on the covers of journals.
The covers have been framed and mounted on four walls of the Current Periodicals Room. Each wall features items created for the Science Covers Project in a different year - 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. With this exhibit the Shapiro Science Library pays tribute to the University of Michigan's outstanding record of scientific achievement. We hope the exhibit will inspire current and future students to carry on the Michigan tradition of excellence.

Funding for this project was made possible through the Shien-Ming Wu endowment fund, a generous donation from Daisy Wu in honor of her late husband, a U-M faculty member in Engineering.
