Where's My Database?!

In the last two years, Kresge Library has discontinued several database subscriptions in order to reduce duplicated content and provide the most relevant and useful resources to Ross students, faculty, and staff. These cancellations have been previously announced on this site and elsewhere, and have now been collected into a single list.

If you have concerns about these cancellations or wish to learn about alternatives to any of these databases, please contact us or send an email to kresge_library@umich.edu.

By Topic pages laid to rest today

Before we started the Kresge Library Wiki, recommendations about what library resources to use were organized in the By Topic section of the Kresge Library website. Today, those old, out-of-date pages are going to go away, and will be replaced entirely by the wiki.

Since Kresge Librarians started working on the wiki, it's quickly become the most actively updated part of our website, and one of the most popular sections. It's accessible to all our librarians to edit, and so we can quickly adapt its content to our users' needs. We've already created pages tailored to courses, MAP teams, and other projects, as well as pages that organize recommended resources according to research topic.

Check out the Kresge Library Wiki for your own project. If you don't find the information you're looking for, contact us, and we'll probably add the resources we discuss with you.

Wiki search added to home page

The Kresge Library Wiki has been added to the dropdown list of search options on our home page. Site visitors can now search our wiki of research recommendations and resources, along with the catalog, website, FAQ, and the Web, all from one location.

Keep an eye out for ongoing updates and improvements to our site over the summer!
