From the research desk

dereck Normally, the Research Blog describes library resources that might be useful to students and faculty. However, today we are departing from that mission to recognize Former Head of Circulation at the McNichols Campus Library Betty Nelson's son Derick who was killed six years ago, May 9, 2015.

He worked in the library during the years he was attending school here and was well known and well liked by many among the Detroit Mercy community. Derick was a brilliant, creative and giving individual. He was the kind of person who would do anything for you. That may sound...
