About the Kalamazoo College Library
The Kalamazoo College Library is housed in the Upjohn Library Commons. We acknowledge that our building resides on the traditional, unceded land belonging to the Three Fires Confederacy: the Ojibwe, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi. We hope this acknowledgment can serve to continually remind us of history and honor this land and the people to whom it belongs.
We are part of the Information Services unit, which also includes Technical and Media Services, Web Services, Administrative Computing, and Educational Technology. The Library includes the College Archives, the A.M. Todd Rare Book Room, and the Learning Commons.
