7th Annual Kresge Food Drive

From Friday March 30st through Friday June 1, 2018 Kresge Library Services will be hosting our 7th annual food drive for Washtenaw County food banks.  Each year during our food drives,  we have collected over 50 boxes of food thanks to the generosity of the Ross Community.  Donations include: 

  • Non-perishable food products 
  •  Contained in factory-sealed containers
  • Currently not expired products
  • Not in glass containers (most food banks avoid these as they can break in transit)
  • Sealed, non used personal products (razors, tooth paste, diapers, shampoo, soap etc)

Please drop off donations on the Kresge Library Services suite (K4521) on the 4th floor of Kresge Hall, or at the front desk in the Winter Garden.

Rescuing Endangered Government Information - January 26

Business relies on a wide range of U.S. government data for daily decision making.  Since the beginning of the Trump Administration, access to it is changing.

On Friday, January 26th at 2pm in Ross Room 1210, Justin Schell, Director of the Shapiro Design Lab at the University of Michigan Libraries and one of the organizers of last year’s Ann Arbor Data Rescue Event, will talk about the current availability of government information and the efforts taken to protect, preserve and maintain access to it.

Join the Special Libraries Association and Kresge Library Services at this event. For more information, see
