Miami University Libraries
The University Libraries are a mainstay of Miami’s student experience, featuring four campus locations and access from anywhere to hundreds of online databases. From cutting-edge technologies like 3D printing to rare historical treasures to simply offering a quiet place to study, the Libraries provide the spaces, guidance, and resources that drive student success.
University of Michigan Library
Consistently ranked as one of the top ten academic research libraries, the University of Michigan Library makes available an extraordinary array of resources and services. The library’s mission is to support, enhance, and collaborate in the instructional, research, and service activities of the faculty, students, and staff, and contribute to the common good by collecting, organizing, preserving, communicating, publishing and sharing the record of human knowledge. Expert staff are committed to helping learners and scholars tap into the full potential of these information resources and to providing a full spectrum of assistance for research and teaching.
Academic Libraries Video Trust
The Academic Libraries Video Trust is a long-term, cooperative project facilitating the preservation of audiovisual works in the collections of member libraries. The principal activity of ALVT is to provide a clearinghouse or repository of digital versions of selected AV works, generally works currently available only in the obsolete VHS format. The service is built on opportunities allowed to libraries and archives for the preservation and replacement of works in their collections, pursuant to Section 108 of the U.S. Copyright Act. Video Trust offers this service in order to encourage the preservation and appreciation of the educational films, motion pictures, documentaries, and other works that are increasingly out of reach because of obsolete technology.
