Michigan Daily Alumni Photographers

Description

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

Clark Library Government Information Collection

The Clark Library Government Information Collection includes statistics, reports, legislation and policy from all levels of government.  Government documents are housed in several different libraries on campus and are findable in Mirlyn and through our Research Guides.

The University of Michigan Library is a depository for publications of the State of Michigan, United States Government, Government of Canada, United Nations, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and European Union. In addition to the depository collections, the Library subscribes to the publications of several international agencies, including the OECD, World Bank, IMF and WTO. Subject coverage of the collection ranges from policy and economics to health and environmental studies.
    
 
Depository libraries provide local, no-fee access to government information in a non-partisan environment with professional librarians available to assist users. Congress established the Federal Depository Library Program in 1813 to ensure that government information is accessible to the American public. Since then, depository libraries have safeguarded the public’s right to know by collecting, organizing, preserving and maintaining access to information. The University of Michigan Library was designated a federal depository library in 1884.
 
 
 
 
This library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code)
