Electronic book collections at Michigan


The University of Michigan University Library has unveiled a free online collection of more than 20,000 volumes. The body of materials, named the “Digital General Collection” in homage to the library’s original print General Collection, represents the beginning of Michigan’s efforts to make available online a comprehensive body of library materials through a systematic digital preservation program. The collection is expected to grow at the rate of 3000 or more volumes per year. [Library Journal – U. Michigan Library Launches 20,000-Volume Digital Collection]
