UM Summer Bridge Program: Summer Bridge - Home

The UM Summer Bridge guide links Summer Bridge scholars to the many UM Library resources, services, and staff available at you throughout your academic career.


The University of Michigan Library welcomes you to the University of Michigan!  As you begin your academic career we encourage you to explore the vast resources available to you at the MLibrary (really 19 libraries).  All of these are open for your use.

The most important thing to remember is that we, the UM Library faculty (librarians) and staff, are here to assist you throughout your academic career - just ask! 

Getting to us is easy, there is a box to the left that allows you to chat with a librarian during specific service hours or to contact us in other ways.  Also, we have videos, guides, and other kinds of ways to get help - simply go to the Library's  main website:  ( and look under the Help tab.
