How long have you been working for the Journalism Library?

I’ve worked at the journalism library for 11 years.

What is your favorite thing about working with the library/campus?

I’ve always worked in public service because of people and my need to be of assistance.  So, I enjoy working with the journalism library’s incredible staff, students, faculty, alumni, visiting scholars and all who rely on us to anticipate and help fulfill their research and teaching needs.  I get enormous pleasure from helping people.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a doctor or more specifically, a pathologist or histologist.  I did get two biology degrees and taught anatomy and physiology at a college and nursing school and life science to junior high school students.

If you could live/travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I’ve been to several countries in Europe, but I would love to go to St. Petersburg, Russia.  Then, there are all of the Asian countries I need to visit.  So, the answer would probably be everywhere I haven’t been, then return to my favorites:  Vienna, Brussels, Innsbrook, Dublin…

How long have you been working for the Journalism Library?

October will be 28 years. So many things have changed since I started working here.  Have been through two library moves, a mold crisis/disaster and my students who worked for me originally when I started are now almost 40 years old!  I still keep in touch with some of them.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Truck driver ( So I could travel).

If you could live/travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Ireland – I want to retire there.

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.

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.

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
