The Clements Library website includes events, exhibits, subject guides, newsletter issues, library staff, and more.

The William L. Clements Library collects, preserves, and makes available historical resources about the Americas, with particular strengths in 18th and 19th century American history.

The Clements Library is now open for research by appointment.

Help us memorialize University of Michigan Professor Emeritus John W. Shy, an amazing professor and person. A frequent and innovative researcher at the Clements Library, Shy led the way in emancipating military history from its traditionally narrow focus making it instead an essential component of any full understanding of humanity’s past.

It is this creativity in scholarship that friends, family, and colleagues wish to acknowledge and encourage through this fund.

Join us with a gift today.
