Researcher support

We are open online! Our buildings may be closed, but you can connect virtually to our librarians and staff, and access services, resources, and millions of journals and books — including expanded access through HathiTrust.

Researcher services

Our librarians offer a variety of research support services. These services are available for free to all U of M faculty, staff, and graduate students. Research support is also available to U of M departments, colleges, schools, research centers, and labs.

All researcher support consultations will be provided online while library buildings are closed.
