Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday and 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. These areas include main-floor access to Circulation as well as our study and computing space on 1 East with access to MSU printing. As of Feb. 1st, we opened 1 West. Our total capacity at this time is 120 people. We also now have touchless lockers, where you may pick up materials. Outside of safety, our top priority is to provide access to all of our collections. We continue to offer virtual services. We also are paging materials and will continue to mail materials to faculty, staff, and students living off-campus. We encourage you to use our convenient distance services. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for more information.

They were employed in the auto industry and militantly involved in union work, he in Local 600 (Ford Rouge Plant) and she in Local 3 (Dodge Main in Hamtramack), The collection has pamphlets, election material, and shop papers which document their involvement in a number of dissident groups within the United Auto Workers, including the United National Caucus which lobbied for a more democratic union structure. As members of the Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party they collected a good deal of internal party material from the late 1930's to the Vietnam War era.
