In support of the MLK Teach-In this month, University Libraries has created an exhibit on Confederate Rock. Confederate Rock was a monument erected by the John S. Marmaduke Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1935. The monument originally stood in the area we know today as Speakers Circle. In 1974, Mizzou activists led by the Legion of Black Collegians succeeded in having the monument removed from the MU campus. The monument has had many homes in Boone County, eventually being placed at the Centralia Battlefield Historical Site in 2015. This exhibit contains several newspaper articles and photographs that highlight the history of the monument.
Explore this topic with us at Ellis Library. The theme of this year’s MLK Teach-In is “Where Do We Go From Here?” The exhibit will be on display through Friday, March 29th. Interact with us at libraryguides.missouri.edu/mlk
We will have limited hours starting Friday March 22nd. Have a safe and fun Spring Break Tigers!

Did you know that Ellis Library is the second most visited building on Campus? Over 6,000 students use Ellis on a typical school day, and another 2,000 students use specialized libraries that serve Engineering, Geological Sciences, Health Sciences, Journalism, Mathematical Sciences, The Missourian and Veterinary Medicine. Yes – Libraries are the heart of the academic experience, and Great Universities have Great Libraries!!

Did you know the Engineering Library has a Comic Book Club?
This semester we will be reading Monstress, written by Marjorie Liu and illustrated by Sana Takeda. Monstress is set in 20th century Asia and tells the story of a teenage girl who shares a psychic link with a powerful monster. Gorgeously illustrated in a style best described as art deco meets steampunk, this comic has garnered awards for its art as well as its storytelling. The story includes magical creatures, sorceresses, and cat wizards.
We will also be reading Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb by Jonathan Fetter-Vorm. Trinity tells the history of the race to build and the decision to drop the first atomic bomb. The story takes you from 19th century European labs to the various locations of the Manhattan Project. It has been described as both a graphic primer and a philosophical meditation.
You do not need to be an engineering student to participate in Comic Book Club nor do you need to be well-versed in the world of comics and graphic novels. We welcome all majors and all levels of interest! Contact Mara Inge (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Engineering Library if you are interested.
