We are a Foundation Center Cooperating Collections thanks to the aid of the Keewenaw Community Foundation and Michigan Tech University. As members we have access to the Foundation Center’s two premium databases, as well as numerous tutorials, and an online helpdesk. In addition, we also have a paper collection of Foundation center works. Due to licensing restrictions, the Foundation Center databases are only available in the library building, though the tutorials and training are not limited.
