Michiganders, man the telephones!

News via the Winter 2010 print newsletter of the Michigan Genealogical Council:

The Library of Michigan is alive, but it has a new URL (www.michigan.gov/libraryofmichigan) and it's about to take a 20% budget whack. (Call your legislators!) So far they are still able to cooperate with the Archives (which now has a different budget source) in putting records on line. State census records may be next.

Library is not alive. On 12 Feb 2010, Dept of Education announced that many collections will have to find another owner and home including Genealogy, Federal Depository, General Main, Dewey and Reference. What's left, the "core" collection of Michigan, Michigan Documents, and Law will be moved to upper floor. Implementation by 1 Oct 2010. See http://www.scribd.com/doc/26860341/Library-of-Michigan-Plan
