In October 2013, mold was discovered growing on books and bound journal volumes throughout the University of Missouri System's secondary offsite facility, UMLD2. This facility holds approximately 600,000 volumes that belong to the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. To assist with MU Libraries' response to the mold bloom, we have established the Collection Enhancement fund. Your gift will be used to treat, relocate and in some cases, replace items impacted by mold. Our goal is to ensure the MU Libraries' ability to serve the needs of our users is not compromised by this sad event. A gift of any amount is greatly appreciated!
No one cares more about preserving knowledge and scholarship than our librarians and staff. As we work through our response plan, know that we are making every effort to save items with special value and to retain ready access to information in the collection.
