Renowned as one of the top ten academic research libraries in North America, the Shapiro Library at the University of Michigan consistently provides an exceptional range of resources and services to students, faculty, and beyond. The University’s goals to enhance the platform for discovery come with 37,500GSF of renovations, highlighting services and resources the library offers and increasing usability and access for students.

With a strong focus on incorporating advanced technology, the library’s traditional spaces have been redesigned to create study and collaboration areas that cater to the specific needs of students. Student-centric spaces enable library staff to develop innovative services and test emerging library resources, giving access to cutting-edge technology and conducive environments that empower students to enhance their academic connections within the community.

The Digital Scholarship Services Pilot Space will serve as a hub for students seeking to utilize the library’s services and resources, encouraging students to explore and take full advantage of the extensive resources available to them.

This project marks a significant milestone in the University of Michigan’s ongoing mission of academic evolution. By embracing technological advancements and providing inviting spaces for collaboration and study, the University reinforces its commitment to fostering a vibrant academic environment that supports the diverse needs of its students and promotes a culture of innovation and intellectual growth.
