Library faculty are assigned subject specific liaison areas to support Oakland's degree programs.
Each academic department has a library coordinator who works with the liaison to make
purchases. Please review the library liaison assignments list and visit the Collections Development
page to learn more.
You can view our New Books List by subject or month.
As a rule, the library does not purchase required textbooks. View our class textbooks page for more information. We do
encourage faculty to place their personal or review copies on reserve in the library for students to access. Visit the course reserves page for more information.
Check MelCat first when we don't have an item you need. MelCat's statewide system borrows from other Michigan's libraries. Requested materials will be sent to Kresge Library for you to pick up. The service is faster than Interlibrary Loan and is FREE. (Only for books, DVD's & videos not articles.)
Interlibrary Loan service borrows items including articles and books, from any libary nationwide. It is FREE to you and most materials will arrive within two weeks. Patrons must first set-up an account in our ILLiad System.
Kresge has reciprocal borrowing agreements with many local area libraries. (View the list of libraries.)
Patrons can also use Michicard participating libraries by getting a Michicard sticker on their Oakland ID card from Kresge's Circulation Desk.
**Faculty also have additional walk-in borrowing privileges at the University of Michigan - Graduate Library with a valid Oakland ID.
