Services for Students from Kresge Library

With the beginning of Fall Term just around the corner, it is a good time to share an updated two-page guide that we have highlighting some of the services that we offer students at the Ross School of Business.  We have also made it easier to find services for students on our newly designed website.  If you can't find what you are looking for, be sure to contact us with any information-related question you might have.  

Workshops from Michigan's Copyright Office

Wondering about copyright? Being asked to sign a publication contract?  Wonder if you can use a resource in your class or on your MOOC?  The University of Michigan Library's Copyright Office is a great resource for assistance.  The Copyright Office is hosting number of Copyright Workshops this Fall Term on a variety of topics.  Most of these workshops will take place at the Hatcher Library, just a football field length from Ross!  To see the list of upcoming workshops and to register, visit the Copyright Office's workshop page.

6th Annual Kresge Library Services Food Drive

From Friday March 31st through Friday June 2, 2017 Kresge Library Services will be hosting our 6th 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.
