A warning to new users is that the Hatcher building actually combines two structures, one older and one newer, with the floors at different heights -- so there is a confusing proliferation of levels 1A, 1B, 2 North, and so on. It is well worth the trouble to consult a map or talk with a librarian before heading into the stacks.

Many Ann Arbor residents have fond memories of days spent wandering in the dusty stacks.
