The University of Michigan Library’s History Collections are both broad and deep in terms of time periods, regions, and approaches. The library collects materials in all formats and languages, including monographs, media, serials, microforms, and electronic resources. While much of the collection consists of secondary materials, the library does purchase primary sources in both physical and electronic formats. Emerging areas of focus include environmental history and global/big/comparative history.
