Stacks Maintenance

Stacks Maintenance is responsible for the daily pick up and shelving of library materials throughout the Main Library. Over 10,000 volumes are shelved in a normal week. These include circulating books returned to the building; books taken from the shelves and used in the building; books used for interlibrary loan; and books returned from the ongoing inventory project. The goal is to shelve every volume that comes to Stacks as promptly as possible.

If you cannot find a book in our online catalog on the shelf, please contact the Circulation Department at 517-355-2333 for assistance.
