  • UMKC Libraries’ research librarian and OER coordinator Scott Curtis was interviewed by the Kansas City Star. His Open Educational Resources guide is featured in the article and video. Our own open education and outreach librarian Grace Atkins partnered with him to make that guide, and they’re working together on the UM System’s Affordable & Open Educational Resources initiative. The A&OER grant program was announced today in an email from President Choi. Expect to see a great deal of publicity around this initiative.

Sign Up Now for Reverse Trick-or-Treating

Start preparing your Halloween costumes and getting your treats together, because it’s time for reverse trick-or-treating at Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Last year the libraries participated and it was a wonderful time. We delivered goody bags that had coloring books, playdoh, toys, etc.

Reverse trick-or-treating will begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31. If you are interested in participating, either by donating items or joining for the actual event, please email Taira Meadowcroft meadowcroftt@health.missouri.edu

Things to consider for items you want to buy for the kids: “Candy is allowed, but there is a possibility some patients may have restricted diets, so sugar-free candy or toys are also welcome. Suggested treats include stickers, pencils, costume jewelry, toy cars, bouncy balls, key chains, coloring books, Play-Doh and items appropriate for teenagers. Because of latex allergies and choking hazards, no latex balloons are allowed.”
