The New Jim Crow: One Read Program Exhibit in Ellis Library

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander is this year’s One Read Program selection. The One Read Program is sponsored by Mizzou Law and Mizzou Libraries in order to facilitate conversations of diversity, inclusion, and social justice throughout the MU community. This year’s selection, The New Jim Crow, examines how old forms of discrimination have been legalized through the war on drugs and unequal enforcement of criminal laws.

An exhibit in the Ellis Library Colonnade features a timeline showing the increasing numbers of incarcerated Missourians over the past four decades. Key moments in criminal law, the privatization of prisons, Supreme Court decisions, and more are highlighted. The exhibit will be on display through October.

For more information, including upcoming events, visit One Read Program, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.

Countdown to Finals: Hours of Library Services

Before finals week, brush up on the hours the services are open at the Mizzou Libraries. Even though Ellis Library will be open 24/7, some services are not.

If you need help, the Research Help & Information Desk in Ellis is open Monday – Thursday from 9 am – 9 pm, Friday from 9 am – 5 pm, Saturday 10 am – 4 pm, and Sunday 12 am – 9 pm. If you can’t make it into the library, you can always chat with a librarian 24/5. Saturday hours are 10 am-10 pm, and then chat services start again Sunday morning at 10 am.

If you need to check out materials, the Circulation Desk is open Monday – Thursday 7:30 am – midnight, Friday 7:30 am – 8:00 pm, Saturday 9:00 am – 8:00 pm, and Sunday 12:00 pm – midnight. However, if you want to check out books, there is a self-checkout machine available at all times.

If you need the MU Print and Mail Center for projects or resumes, check out their hours.

The specialized libraries on campus are not open 24/7, so make sure to check their hours. All library hours are available on the Mizzou Libraries homepage.

How to avoid fines on equipment

We all know that everyone is busy and you don’t want to return equipment late and find out that you have fines for returning it late.

  • Look over our equipment page which tells you what we have to check out and what the check out times are.
  • Look over the equipment agreement form that you signed to be able to check out equipment.
  • You can always check your Merlin account online which tells you what you have checked out and when it’s due.
  • Create a calendar alert on your phone to tell you when items are due.
  • When checking out the equipment you can have the desk attendant show you on his/her checkout screen to see exactly when it’s due.
  • Watch your email for courtesy/overdue reminders and always check your spam folder.
  • If you can’t get back in time for when the equipment is due, call the library to get it extended 573-882-7502.  You can also contact Mary McFillen, Sue Schuermann, Danielle Wilson or Dorothy Carner.
  • If you do get fined for late equipment, remember that you will get charges for each piece of equipment you check out.  That can be several items on a camera kit.
  • Here are how fines work:
  • Fines for Reserve Books & Equipment

    Overdue Books on Reserve = $2/hr/book

    Overdue Equipment = $2/hr with $50 maximum

    Items not returned will need to be replaced with an exact replacement. Items not returned or replaced will result in a replacement cost and loss of MU Library checkout privileges and if replacement costs are high enough and you do not respond to emails about overdue or billed equipment, you can have a report filed on you at the Student Conduct Center. Always answer any emails about overdue equipment. Equipment must be returned or replaced. Fines can be negotiated on request.

    Returning Overdue Reserve/Equipment Items Will Not Remove Fines

Next time you publish: claim your rights

Your article has been accepted for publication in a journal and, like your colleagues, you want it to have the widest possible distribution and impact in the scholarly community. In the past, this required print publication. Today you have other options, like online archiving, but the publication agreement you’ll likely encounter will actually prevent broad distribution of your work.

You would never knowingly keep your research from a readership that could benefit from it, but signing a restrictive publication agreement limits your scholarly universe and lessens your impact as an author.

Why? According to the traditional publication agreement, all rights —including copyright — go to the journal. You probably want to include sections of your article in later works. You might want to give copies to your class or distribute it among colleagues. And you likely want to place it on your Web page or in an online repository if you had the choice. These are all ways to give your research wide exposure and fulfill your goals as a scholar, but they are inhibited by the traditional agreement. If you sign on the publisher’s dotted line, is there any way to retain these critical rights?

Yes. The SPARC Author Addendum is a legal instrument that modifies the publisher’s agreement and allows you to keep key rights to your articles. Learn more.
