1 There seem to be a lot of ants on the desks in the second floor this summer. No matter where I sit there is bound to be an ant walking on or around the desk. I had never noticed this as an issue within the past two years of being a student. Any way to fix this?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we have already notified Facilities re. this matter and they will be fumigating the area to have the ants removed. Roca M. Beiro

Our license agreements prohibit the Libraries from providing alumni remote access to all of our licensed electronic resources, however these two special subscriptions have been created to allow some continued access to electronic content for alumni. If you live in the area, you can gain entrance to Richter Library by showing your UM Alumni Cane Card or Alumni Association Card, then obtain a temporary code to use our public computers to access all of the Libraries' electronic resources.
