The University Libraries provide partnership and support for many of the K-12 Summer Programs on campus both internal/external. We provide instruction, library accounts while on campus, mentorship and work opportunities. The resources that are being shared are a way to engage your student in not only college-research but life opportunities outside of course work. It is important to note that when accessing the University of Michigan Library's electronic resources and physical material, the student will need to have a valid Mcard, uniqname and password.
