Searching for an Academic Resource

There are many resources that members of the UM-Dearborn community can access through the Mardigian Library. Most of those resources can be found through the Mardigan Search box below. The best way to find the resources most appropriate to your needs is to use the "Advanced Search" feature and use the limiters available there to pinpoint what you need.

If you need to go into more in-depth searches or if you need to find resources of a specific type, see the subpages:

Or, as with anything else, feel free to reach out to me at for help!

Finding Videos

See this guide for more details on finding and using videos in your courses. 

How can I get materials that are not at the Mardigian Library?

Both faculty and students can request books, articles, and DVDs delivered from other libraries to the Mardigian Library. (For directions on using these services see this library guide to Interlibrary loans.) Please note that this is not an immediate access service, it may take up to a week for materials to be delivered to the campus library and you can pick them up from here. 

You can request materials directly from UM-Ann Arbor or UM-Flint

You can also request materials directly from other libraries in Michigan through MeLCat.

If you can not find what you are looking for through either of the above methods, please fill out the ILLiad loan request form or email me at

How do I have library books or DVDs delivered to my office?

Faculty and staff can have library books, DVDs, and other items delivered to their departmental mailboxes:

  • Use the online Faculty and Staff Delivery Service form to request item delivery. We do not take phone requests.
  • You may choose to have the items held at the library's User Services Desk, or checked out to your library account and delivered via campus mail.
  • Requests will be processed within 24 hours of receipt.
  • Please allow 1-2 days for delivery via campus mail.
  • Visit the Faculty Delivery and Proxy Cards web page for more information.
