In December 2009, the University of Michigan officially closed the Social Work Library. It was one of the unfortunate specialized library branches that closed across campus due to low demand and budget costs. All graduate students must visit the main libraries to check out and return books. I still use the former library space in the School of Social Work to check my email or type a paper, but it feels very empty because the bookshelves are no longer available there. The hours have also been cut back an hour there. I do not know what will become the new layout for the former library.
