Astronomy Resources at Shapiro Science Library

The University of Michigan libraries collect books and periodicals in the field of astronomy to support research and instruction by members of the University of Michigan astronomy community.

Most of the astronomy materials collected at the University of Michigan are housed in the Shapiro Science Library, on the 3rd and 4th Floors of the Shapiro Library Building. The campus depository for NASA reports and the primary home of aerospace materials is the Art, Architecture & Engineering Library on North Campus.

For help in locating library materials you may wish to consult the Science Library's Virtual Tour, or contact Ask A Librarian.
