Members of the public, however, are welcome to use the U of M Libraries' electronic resources "on-site". We have structured our licensing agreements with database providers to make this possible. The public is also welcome in our libraries for use of on-site collections and most facilities. One does not need a card or pass to enter and use the Libraries.
