The services offered by Michigan libraries are in danger of being cut. These services include access to important Marygrove Library research databases like Academic OneFile, Wilson SelectPlus, ERIC, and Social Sciences Abstracts, to name a few, plus access to more than 2,700 full-text periodicals. Furthermore, our plans this year to join the statewide interlibrary loan group, MeLCat, may be jeopardized since cuts in funding would likely cripple the system, depriving library users of fast, easy access to collections across the state.
