New Library Search Feature Now Available
The search functionality on the Kresge Library website has been updated to use the new UM Library Search service. The Library Search allows users to search across content from a wide variety of resources available to the entire campus, including resources that were available through the previous Kresge Library search feature.
When using the search boxes on the Kresge Library website, users will now be directed to the Library Search interface. From there, users will be able to access results from the UM Library Catalog, see articles related to their search, and find relevant databases and online journals, including those subscribed to by Kresge Library.
Sports Business Journal Now Available
Sports Business Journal is now available to the Ann Arbor campus. SBJ All-Access includes both the weekly and daily Sports Business Journal publications. University of Michigan users have full access to all the content (publications, podcasts, video, etc) on the Sports Business Journal website.
Users will need to sign up for a free online account to access the archives. SBJ All-Access is available from the Library's A-Z Database List.

Updates on Services from the Kresge Course Materials Team
The Kresge Course Materials team has made a few changes that we hope will help keep students and faculty members safe this Fall. You can find all the details on our webpage (https://tinyurl.com/rosscoursepacks), but here are a few highlights:
- New TEXTPAK Shipping and Pickup Options: Kresge staff have temporarily closed the TEXTPAK delivery point in Kresge Hall. To obtain their TEXTPAKs, students may opt to pick them up at a new point in the University of Michigan’s Print-Copy-Mail offices, or have the TEXTPAK shipped to a home address. Our page (https://tinyurl.com/rosscoursepacks) has more details on shipping and locations.
- A Course Materials Chat Service: If you’d like to ask us how to purchase, access, or ship your course materials, please give our new Course Materials Chat service a try. Just visit our webpage (https://tinyurl.com/rosscoursepacks) and type your question in the Chat box. We’ll be available from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, Monday through Friday.
