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.
