Thank you everyone for celebrating National Library Week! The library would like to share some quotes about libraries from people you may know (compiled by the Association for Library Service to Children).
Have a shoebox of photographs tucked away in the closet? Years of pics jamming up your phone? Just in time for Preservation Week two experts from the University of Michigan Library Department of Preservation and Conservation will discuss the fundamentals of preserving personal documents and images. They will present basic strategies for preserving both physical items and digital files and include tips for how to digitize physical documents to share and keep. There will be an extended question time for participants to ask about preserving their own documents.
Presenters: Scott Witmer is a digital preservation specialist in the Digital Preservation unit at the University of Michigan Library
Shannon Zachary is head of the Department of Preservation & Conservation at the University of Michigan Library

The library staff got creative today and made some poems from book titles. Feel free to create your own at home and send a picture to us. It also is a great way to show off your own collection of books.
