PubMed will be getting a new look this fall. 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 September. 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.
ORCID iDs can help you distinguish yourself from others with a similar name, increases visibility and impact of your scholarly publications, and helps you affiliate with the University of Missouri. Your ORCID can only do this if you set your profile to public!
You may inadvertently set your privacy setting to Only Me, which means only you can view the information on your profile.
When others search for you, they only see No public information available. No one will see your affiliation, publications or contact information. We know your privacy is important, but ORCID does not store any non-personal data.
In your privacy settings, be sure to change the setting from the red Only Me to the green Everyone.

Rural Missouri magazine was started in 1948. It’s the statewide publication of the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives. Issues are released monthly to more than 500,000 members of Missouri’s electric co-ops. The magazine features interesting businesses and people, as well as interesting places to visit.
The current issue of Rural Missouri is located in the North Colonnade of Ellis Library. Back editions are available at the State Historical Society, as well as online at http://www.ruralmissouri.org/archives.php.
The current issue of Rural Missouri features a spread on the interesting items you can now check out at various Missouri libraries, as well as unique events taking place. Libraries aren’t just for books anymore, and the examples in this issue prove that in abundance! Some of the items available or loan include a telescope, superhero cake pans, American Girl dolls, and fishing poles. Some of these libraries are also giving away free items! Adair County Public Library in Kirksville allows people to take 10 seed packets home, using seeds donated from various seed companies and exchanges, in addition to handouts with information on gardening. In May, that same library hosted a comic book day and gave away stacks of comics. Libraries are also hosting Bingo nights, adopt-a-pet fairs, and star-gazing parties, to name a few. Be sure to check out interesting events and items at your local library!
For example, here at Ellis Library, if you need earplugs, you can find them in a vending machine on the first floor; if it’s raining, you can borrow an umbrella; a tripod if you want to take some pictures; as well as various electronics, including chargers for phones and laptops. In the last year, Ellis has perfected its Digital Media Lab, with a recording booth, a 3D scanner, and a green screen, all available by appointment: http://libraryguides.missouri.edu/dmc.

The west stacks of Ellis Library will be closed starting June 7 due to work on the foundation of the building.

The stacks will open again in the fall.
Digital Services is excited to share that about 250 photographs from the newly acquired Hiller Collection are now available in MU Digital Library. A description of the collections and list of contents can be found in the Hiller collection library guide.
This collection is a valuable resource for students’ and faculty’s research. Yueheng Lyu, a spring 2019 history intern, worked with Special Collection and Digital Services to make part of this collection available online. She chose to digitize slides about two cities in China, Nanking and Soochow. She conducted research on the content of the photographs and curated a digital exhibit with some images that she had digitized. A professor in MU History Department also showed research interests in these slides, especially the ones related to the hardship that Chinese people experienced during the Chinese Civil War.
So far, about 370 slides have been digitized and 250 are available in MU Digital Library. We will continue working on digitizing the rest of the slides in the Hiller Collection and making them digitally available, accessible, and discoverable to more people.
Here are a few examples of the digitized slides:
After you graduate, the University Libraries will still be here to serve you. To find out more about the resources available to alumni, visit Library Resources for Alumni.
All of us at the University Libraries, wish you the very best in your future endeavors!
