The Area Programs Libraries consist of the Near East Division, the Slavic, East European and Eurasian Division, the South Asia Division, and the Southeast Asia Division.  Each division represents the regions, cultures, and languages designated in its name.  As units of the Graduate Library, the divisions manage collections acquired from their geographic areas, in their languages, and on their distinctive subjects; solicit and accept purchase recommendations; catalogue the new acquisitions; provide assistance to library users in the use of the collections; and offer formal instruction in the bibliographic resources of the units' areas of expertise.

The Area Programs reference collection is located in room 110 N. Hatcher Graduate Library. The reference collections holds basic reference books (dictionaries, grammars, encyclopedias, collection catalogues, text collections, sacred works, commentaries, biographies, etc.).  There are four sections of shelving for the divisions' reference works: Near East; Slavic, East European and Eurasian; South Asia; and Southeast Asia. There also five computers for use by students, faculty, and visitors, who may login with UM user names and passwords or as visitors. All library electronic resources are accessible. There is as well a microfilm reader.

The University of Michigan Library collects materials in over 400 languages.  Area Programs acquires books,  journals, magazines, newspapers, and other publications in over 50 of these languages.  Together, as represented in MIRLYN, these languages are tabulated in the Language Frequency Count 2011.

Text Creation Partnership (TCP)

The Text Creation Partnership is a non-profit initiative that produces standardized, digitally encoded editions of early print books selected from the Early English Books Online (EEBO), Eighteenth-Century Collections Online (ECCO) and Evans Early American Imprints databases. The TCP has teams at the University of Michigan and University of Oxford Libraries; the project is managed at UM. 

This labor-intensive process involves:

  • Manual keyboard entry (from digital images of the books’ original pages)
  • The addition of structured, semantic markup (based on the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines)
  • Editorial review

Our work makes it possible to search the full text of books in EEBO, ECCO, or Evans. The files we produce also function as base texts for digital scholarly editions and, together, comprise a significant set of historical linguistic data ripe for analysis. 

The work of the Text Creation Partnership is funded by a large network of library partners. Each partner institution's one-time contribution:

  • Makes them a co-owner of the texts, with perpetual rights to use them as if created locally
  • Guarantees their immediate access to existing texts, and updates as they are released
  •  Funds the production of more texts, improving the corpus for all partner institutions

UM Library staff working on the TCP include: 


More about the Text Creation Partnership, and how to become a partner in EEBO-TCP Phase II, is available on our project's main website

Whether you need our services or just want advice, we can point you in the right direction or guide you along the way; our digitization project workflow is your place to start if you want to:

We also:

  • Develop digital library software: We build, with others, stable, scalable, sustainable systems to serve the library and its partnerships; examples are HathiTrustDLXS, and Deep Blue.

  • Create digital preservation solutions: We are actively engaged in the process of defining, adopting, and carrying out best practices; we contributed to the definition of, for instance, HathiTrust’s Digital Preservation Policy.

  • Encode texts: We have a great deal of expertise which we are happy to share; the Text Creation Partnership and Making of America are great examples of our work in this area.

  • Support digital video: We help to support the use of the campus-wide MiVideo solution.
