Consistently ranked as one of the top academic research libraries in North America, the University of Michigan Library makes available an extraordinary array of resources and services.
We have physical locations throughout campus and offer a wealth of resources in traditional as well as digital formats, encompassing more than 8.5 million print volumes and one of the finest digital collections in the world.
Our expert staff are committed to helping patrons tap the full potential of these resources and provide a broad spectrum of assistance for research and teaching. We help students at every step in their educational career and work closely with faculty and graduate students to support their research needs.
