If you’re short on supplies, you can buy more from a vending machine located near Ellis Library’s north entrance onto Lowry Mall. The bluebooks in this machine are free, so pick them up ahead of your first exams. The vending machine also stocks the following items:
- Highlighter Sharpie
- Wite-out Correction Pen
- Binder Clips
- Black Sharpie
- G-2 Black Pen
- Bic Pencil .7mm
- Bic Pencil .5 mm
- Memo Book
- AAA Batteries
- Mini Stapler
- Ear Plugs
- Flash Drives
- Scotch Tape
- Sticky Notes
- 4 Function Calculator
- Envelopes 5 pack
You can find bluebooks and other supplies at the Mizzou Store if the library vending machine runs out.
Staplers are located near each set of printers in Ellis Library, but please be gentle! If a stapler runs out or jams, take it to the Research Help and Information Desk immediately. Along with providing research help, our librarians are skilled stapler surgeons.
Finals are a week away, and Mizzou Libraries wants to help you be prepared. Check this post every day this week for tips on getting ready for your exams using library resources and services.

Stocking up on Supplies
Hours of Library Services
Finals week can be overwhelming, but doing some things ahead will save time later. Before finals start:
If you’ve found the perfect article on Google, you don’t need to pay for it. Instead, connect your Google Scholar search results to resources you have access to through Mizzou Libraries.
1. Go to scholar.google.com.
2. Click “Settings.”
3. Click “Library links” on the left side of the page.
4. Search for the University of Missouri and select the “University of Missouri – Findit@MU” option.
Now when you search Google Scholar, a Findit@MU link will appear next to materials the library has access to. Click the link to be taken directly to the article.
