Saline Historic Homes is a collection of photographs from a Historical and Architectural Survey that includes all structures built up to 1944 within the city limits of Saline, Michigan. Conducted in 1994 by Kosky and Glynn Associates, this survey is the result of the City’s intent to comply with the Certified Local Government requirements. The objective of the survey was to research, photograph and map all structures built within the City of Saline between 1829 and 1944. The completed project includes a survey card and black and white photograph for each structure, a map of all surveyed structures, and historical and architectural text encompassing the study period.
The LandScan Global Population Databases, developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, represent resolution global population distribution databases available. This is a geographically based, population distribution model.
LandScan is a global population database that shows geographical distribution of population at one-kilometer resolution over an average 24 hour period.
The LandScan algorithm uses spatial data and imagery analysis technologies and the most up-to-date census data within an administrative boundary. Accurate administrative boundaries are an integral part of the LandScan population distribution modeling process. These population distribution models are tailored to match the data conditions and geographical nature of each individual country and region.
Most national censuses count populations by measuring where people sleep (or reside) rather than where they work or travel. LandScan integrates daytime movements and collective travel habits into a single measure to produce a better representation of where people are located during an average day.
With improvements added this year, high-resolution imagery sources were used extensively for validation to refine urban areas, land cover data, and thousands of smaller villages and populated places.

This "featured collection" in the HathiTrust Digital Library makes it possible to search the full text of most of the print books in the Hatcher Graduate Library's Reference Collection (about 7,500 works in about 15,000 print volumes), including most of the books shelved in the Reference Reading Room and at the Information and Reference Center on the second floor.
For the 20% of materials covered that are in the public domain, the full text of the reference work can be viewed online. The other 80% of works covered that remain in copyright are "Search Only," meaning that the full text cannot be viewed online, but search results indicate on what page(s) of the volume a match with the search terms occurs, so one can then retrieve the print volume and know what page(s) to turn to locate the search terms in the printed text.
Note: No reference works published since 2010 are covered by this index. Neither are reference works that the library has acquired only in online form. This is an index to print reference works only.
The Michigan Daily Alumni Photographers Project is a collaborative effort of the University of Michigan Board of Student Publications, The Michigan Daily and Bentley Historical Library to preserve and promote the rich photographic heritage of The Michigan Daily. That heritage provides documentation of the campus, the community, and the wider world and demonstrates the technical skills and aesthetic vision the photographers brought to their assignments.
The Bentley Library's Michigan Daily record group includes negatives and prints dating from 1963 to 2004 (bulk 1963-1982) and some digital images for 1995 to 2006.
To supplement the Bentley's Michigan Daily collection, the Bentley and the Board of Student Publications have reached out to former Daily photographers who may have personal collections of their work for the Daily, asking if they would consider contributing a selection of their best images for inclusion in the Michigan Daily Alumni Photographers Project. To date Jay Cassidy (1967-1969), Steve Kagan (1970-1973), and Sara Stillman (1995-1998) have contributed to the project. Cassidy has contributed his entire collection of 4882 images (original negatives and digitized surrogates). Kagan provided a selection of 91 digitized images and Stillman had earlier donated her collection of negatives to the archives, A selection of Stillman's negatives and approximately 200 images from the Bentley 's Daily collection have been digitized in the initial phase of the project
