Introduction

This quick guide is primarily designed to help UM law students, faculty and staff members to locate books, journals and newspapers on campus. It may also assist users from other communities to find items available on UM campus.

The most efficient way to locate books, journals and newspapers on campus is to perform a search in library catalogs. The University of Michigan has three separate library catalog systems: MLaw Library Catalog (for Law Library), Kresege Business Library Catalog (for Business Library), and Mirlyn (for all the other 19 libraries on campus including Thompson Library on Flint Campus).

You may access all three library catalogs through MLaw Library website: http://umil.iii.com/. (University of Michigan-Dearborn library has its own library catalog: http://library.umd.umich.edu/). UM Law Students, faculty and staff members need to submit Inter-Library Loan Requests to retrieve items owned by UM-Dearborn Library). Other users may submit ILL requests through their own home libraries.
