Celebrate International Open Access Week with the University Libraries! Learn how to make your research and scholarship more widely available via Open Access. Members of the Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Committee will share information and advice on the “hows” and “whys” of Open Access publishing. Topics will include assessing the quality of Open Access journals, navigating publisher agreements, and posting articles to MOspace, MU’s digital institutional repository.
Are you new to publishing your work? Do you have questions you need answered about the publishing process? This series provides University of Missouri authors with opportunities to hear from major academic publishers about their processes as well as learn from librarians and campus colleagues about important trends and issues related to academic publishing.

The paintings and drawings by Lisa Brooke currently on display in the library have viewers commenting “I thought they were photos” and as one viewer added, “they look better than photos!”
These must-see artworks are done in acrylic or colored pencil. Each has an authentic look that has much to do with the carefully chosen colors and the exquisite fine detail work. Take a good look at the feathers on the roosters and other birds. Notice the execution of drifted snow, melting snow, the colors of the snow applied to show reflected sunlight and shadows. Find how well the rabbit and quail prey in the pictures blend in with their surroundings, just as in life. In addition to depicting wildlife, Lisa enjoys making portraits of people and of pets.
We are pleased to host this display through the end of January 2020. To see more artworks by Lisa visit her Facebook page “Art by Lisa Brooke”.
PubMed will be getting a new look in 2020. You should see major improvements to how PubMed looks and performs, both on your desktop and mobile devices.
You can preview the new interface at PubMed Labs.
The current timeline is for PubMed to be switched to the new version in 2020. Old and new PubMed will run concurrently for a few months, and then old PubMed will be retired at the end of the year.
Of course, these dates could change and we will keep you updated.
