Welcome to the guide for Researching and Exploring Detroit!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for information on the City of Detroit. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty.

I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to the City of Detroit.
