Purchasing Copies With a Short Code

Applying Short Code Funds to an MLibrary Copy Card (Guest MCard)

 

MLibrary Copy Cards (guest MCards) are available for purchase in $2, $5, and $10 amounts at the Hatcher and Shapiro main circulation desks. To add funds to a guest MCard using a short code, fill out and submit Copy Services' Card Charge Form. This form can only be used to apply funds to a copy card; to apply funds to a personal MCard, see below. More information about copy cards is available on the Copy Services website. To report a lost or stolen copy card for reimbursement, use Copy Services' Lost Copy Card form.

 

Applying Short Code Funds to a Personal MCard

To apply short code funds to a personal MCard you must contact the ITS Accounts Office. Most UM employees are allocated 50 pages of ITS printing per semester; this amount resets automatically at the beginning of a new semester, but funds added via a short code will remain on the card if unused. Questions about MCard printing/copying balances should be directed to the ITS Accounts Office. You can also check your standard computing services resource balances (includes printing).

About Us

Shapiro Science Library

The Shapiro Science Library provides services and resources to support research, teaching, and scientific inquiry in the fields of Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Geological Sciences, Mathematics, Natural Resources and Environment, Physics and Statistics.

Location

The Science Library is located on the 3rd and 4th floors of the Shapiro Library Building, which also houses the Shapiro Undergraduate Library and the Askwith Media Library. The Science Library can be reached via exterior doors on the building's north side or via the indoor connector from the Hatcher Graduate Library.

Science Library Course Reserves are located in the Askwith Media Library on the second floor, North end. Materials are available whenever Askwith is open (check the hours database for current hours).

Electronic and Print Resources

The Science Library has a vast array of electronic and print resources, including over 400,000 print volumes. The library subscribes to over 2,000 journals. Both books and journals are shelved by Library of Congress call number. Journals are located on the third floor; books and monograph series (such as Lecture Notes in Mathematics) are on the fourth floor. Many titles are available electronically - check Mirlyn for details.

Science Librarians and Subject Specializations

Science librarians are available to give UM faculty, students and staff in-depth research assistance. Please call the Graduate Library Reference Desk (734-764-9373) or Undergraduate Library Reference Desk (734-763-4141), or contact the subject librarian whose specialization most closely matches your topic or area of interest.

What They're Saying About Us

"Friendly and fast. I've never had a question the Science Library wasn't able to answer quickly and correctly."

"The Science Library and its Librarians and staff at the Shapiro Undergraduate Library are gems on the University of Michigan campus. Its holdings of books and electronic resources are extensive and thorough. The Librarians and staff are knowledgeable, efficient, hard-working, and friendly."

"Very helpful and courteous staff!"

"The library is one of a few critical factors that have kept me at UM for over 30 years.  The holdings of the Science Library in particular, with their astonishing scope and historical depth, are a foundation for my research and teaching at UM; few other institutions offer anything even close."

"U of M library has the best math collection and we are committed to keep it this way."

"I find the Science Library to be an excellent resource. Both the print and electronic journal collections are excellent and I find the third floor journal space very pleasant, I particularly like the new books section. I very much hope all this continues at the current high level.  I also find the librarians to be very helpful and pleasant to deal with."

"The mathematics library here at Michigan is nothing short of spectacular. With a nearly complete collection of journals, it adds immeasurably to the mathematical life of the department. When I hear from colleagues about the science libraries at other schools, it is clear that here we are way ahead both in the completeness of the collection and the move to electronic access and delivery of material.  I feel very fortunate to be at a department with such an outstanding mathematical library."
