The library’s reopening is being planned in alignment with university and state policies and procedures. Our focus is on prioritizing the health and safety of the U-M community, while supporting campus needs for the fall semester.
Our limited onsite services are only available to current students, faculty, and staff at this time.
Visit Campus Maize & Blueprint for more information about the university’s planning efforts and approach.
Accessing online resources
Subscription agreements limit access to most of our online resources to current students, staff, and faculty (including emeriti).
If you’re a Michigan resident, you can use Michigan eLibrary eResources with either a valid Michigan driver’s license, state ID number, or library card number issued from a public library in the state.
You may also be able to request electronic materials through interlibrary loan using your local library.
Finding government information
As a federal depository library, we provide local, no-fee access to government information. Even though our buildings are closed, much of this is available online. See our guide to finding U.S. government information.
