2:00-3:00pm Tour of Clements Library
The William L. Clements Library on the campus of the University of Michigan, collects, preserves, and makes available historical resources about the Americas, with particular strengths in 18th and 19th-century American history. We invite LOEX members to a special behind the scenes tour featuring materials from our archives. Discover why researchers come from all over the world to study our collections of original handwritten and printed materials.  

3:00-4:00pm Tour of Grad Library and Undergrad Library
The Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, also on Michigan's central campus, houses the primary research collections for the humanities and social sciences. It is connected by walkway to the Shapiro Library Building, a popular meeting and study space which contains the Shapiro Undergraduate Library (aka "the UGLi").  A U of M librarian will lead a walking tour of key aspects of these world-renowned libraries.
