Successful Food Drive

Kresge would like to thank the Ross community for the donation that made our 4th annual food drive such a success.  Together we donated 24 boxes of food and personal items to Hope Clinic and Saline Area Social Services, and additional cleaning products were given to Crafty Cat Rescue.   Thank you to all who participated.

Kresge Catalog - New Look in July 1

The Kresge Catalog, our searchable database of our electronic resource titles (or 'stuff we have access to'), will get a new look starting July 1. This new catalog will allow users to search for electronic resources - ebooks, ejournals, databases - available to the Ross Community.

You can get a sneak preview of the new interface right now. This slimmed down version provides separate tabs for searching only ebooks and only ejournals, as well as the entire set of resources.

Remember, Kresge Library is not alone! To find even more resources available to you at the University, be sure to check MIRLYN too.

Let us help you find it! If you need any help with the resources, including tracking down an ejournal or an ebook, Email us at kresge_library@umich.edu or fill out our Contact Us form.

The change in catalog systems was necessitated by our move from a collection of physical items to a collection of electronic only resources. The old system provided functionality for a collection of physical items and became cost prohibitive to maintain for our new collection.

Library Database Server Maintenance, Friday May 22

Access to the Kresge Library Databases via the Ross user links will be unavailable for a period of about 2 hours between 7am - 9am Friday morning  due to server maintenance.

During this time, access to most of the databases is available via the UM user links on the A-Z Database page.

OneSource is now Avention!

OneSource, the go-to database for company information, has a new name and interface! Now called Avention, this database provides the same great company profiles and industry information but with a more powerful search capability and easy to use interface.

New features include:
  • Additional coverage: around 3 million new companies, expanded number of contacts and emails plus additional data points such as technologies (software, etc.) used at a company.
  • Conceptual search: works like a keyword search across all database content including company info.
  • Build-A-List is now Advanced Search: with filtering capabilities on just about every data point and keyword. The search results look nicer, the downloading is a bit easier to figure out. The email viewing restrictions have been removed. 
  • Business Signals: analysis of company operations, actions and changes from social media, news, and other resources within the database.
Avention is available on the Library's A-Z Database page.
