23,000 New Titles—MCLS ARPA Grant

We are pleased to announce access to over 23,000 new titles in the Lydia M. Olson Library collection, made possible by federal grant funds.

23,000 New Titles. American Rescue Plan Act & The Library of Michigan.

In March 2021, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) which awarded the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) $200 million. As a result, the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS) was awarded a $500,000 American Rescue Plan Act grant from the Library of Michigan, titled "Increasing Digital Content at Michigan's Publicly-Funded Academic Libraries: Expanding Information Access". Monies were allotted to all publicly funded libraries in Michigan, including universities, community colleges, and Michigan's three tribal colleges. As a recipient of grant funds, Lydia M. Olson Library liaison librarians selected digital content worth over $9,000. Ebook titles were selected to support teaching across campus and further the research of faculty and students.

The Wiley ebook package of 23,000 titles will be accessible to the Lydia M. Olson library for one year. With user data and librarian input, we will be selecting titles to own in perpetuity. To explore the vast resources, visit the Wiley Online Library. NMU login required.
