Kresge Library Collection Transfer - July 10, 2014
The Kresge Library Print Collection Transfer to the University Library started Monday July 7, 2014. The last of the books going to the University Library were pulled today, July 10, 2014. The University Library has been working with Kresge on identifying items that are not duplicated within their print collection. In total, nearly 55,000 items will be moving to the University Library from the Kresge Collections that had been on the 4th Floor of Kresge. This represents around 75-80% of our holdings, which shows the unique value this material had on the Michigan Campus. Movers from Corrigan will be working all week moving the print collections and some library furniture that will go to the University Library. The print collections that are taken by the University Library will be moved into storage while a permanent home is found at the University Library. It will likely be late this year when the print items are available for research use. The collection will not be returning to Ross.
