Kresge Library Print Collection Update

The Kresge print collection has been permanently removed from the Kresge building to prepare for construction.

Many of the books, nearly 55,000 items, have made the short journey up Tappan to their new home at the University Library.  These print collection items (including books, bound journals, and microfilm) were moved during the week of July 14 to a temporary storage facility.  We anticipate that these items will be searchable in Mirlyn later in 2014 when they incorporated into the University Library collection.

Books not selected by the University Library (primarily duplicate copies of works) were sent to Better World Books to either be sold, donated or recycled.
