West Stacks Closure: How to Request Materials

The west stacks of Ellis Library are closed due to work on the foundation of the building. In order to access materials located in the west stacks, you will need to make a request through the MERLIN library catalog. For detailed information about this process, visit http://library.missouri.edu/inthelibrary/borrowing/requestretrieval/.

If you have additional questions, you may get help in person at the Research Help desk or the Check Out desk. Online help is available at Ask the Librarians!

The stacks will open again after the fall semester.

home Ellis Library, Gateway Carousel, Resources and Services Ellis Library Stacks Refresh Project

Ellis Library Stacks Refresh Project

Ellis Library is beginning a project to make it easier for our users to find the most up-to-date library materials on our shelves. To make space for new materials, librarians will be moving older and infrequently used bound journals to the University Libraries Depository, where they will be stored in optimal conditions for long-term preservation. University students, faculty and staff can request entire journal volumes or scanned copies of individual articles through the MERLIN catalog with the click of a button. Learn more about our Scan and Deliver Service.

Request button in MERLIN catalog

As we work through the process of refreshing our stacks, your subject librarian may request feedback from faculty on moving particular titles. If you would like to be notified about titles under consideration or have questions about titles proposed for transfer, please contact your subject librarian or Jeannette Pierce, Associate University Librarian for Research, Access, and Instructional Services.

Heads up! PubMed Changes Coming This Fall

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.

Read more about the changes.

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.

Don’t Hide Behind Your ORCID iD

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.

 

 

 

Need help with privacy settings or setting up your ORCID iD? Please email asklibrary@health.missouri.edu

Hidden Gems @ the Library: Rural Missouri

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.
