Antiracist Reading List: Ebooks Available at Mizzou Libraries

Not sure where to start? Here are a few books that can help you be more than “not racist.”

Mizzou students, staff, and faculty can access these ebooks using the links. If you have a Daniel Boone Regional Library library card, you can check out the titles featured in the Daniel Boone Regional Libraries’ list of antiracist recommendations.

We have many more books available in print, and starting in July, you can place a copy on hold to pick up using our curbside service.

Zalk Library Updates

Starting June 1, Zalk Library staff will be on-site Monday and Wednesday mornings.

While we will still be closed to patrons, having access to our print collection a few mornings a week will allow us to scan items for you in a much more timely fashion! More information on how the University Libraries are expanding services

Need an article from our print collection? Make a request through FindIt@MU or email us at vetlib@missouri.edu

Need a book chapter for your students? Email us at vetlib@missouri.edu

Ways to contact us:

  • Email vetlib@missouri.edu
  • Call 573-882-2461 (Monday / Wednesday morning) or 573-882-6259 (Kate)
  • Set up a Zoom meeting with Kate

And, of course, our electronic resources are already online through the Zalk Library website.

How to access our online resources:

  • Use the links on the Zalk Library home page or from any Libraries page. These links have all been “proxied,” so when you hit a subscribed resource, you’ll be asked to log-in with your SSO.
  • Use the Journal Finder to get to specific journal titles. The Journal Finder will let you know which years are available electronically.
  • We have a ton of ebooks!
  • Really just want PubMed? Bookmark the “MU” PubMed link to be connected to the FindIt@MU information.
  • Set your Google Scholar settings to show the FindIt@MU link for easy off-campus access to journal articles
  • Use VPN — but use it sparingly. Because of the heavy load to VPN across campus, it’s often quicker to use the links on our home page and proxy in to the library resources.
  • More information on Off-campus Access to Library Resources
  • Note: many libraries around the country are still closed or have very limited access to their print collections. You may experience delays with requests from other libraries.

Temporary access to more electronic journals and books:

  • Many publishers and vendors are lowering their paywalls during the outbreak and/or providing MU with additional electronic access due to our existing relationships with them. See our guide to temporary and expanded access.
  • Of particular interest:
    • Books owned by both the University Libraries and the HathiTrust are available via a form of controlled digital lending. This special online access to our print books that have a digital counterpart in the HathiTrust will end when we reopen our physical locations. Log in with your SSO on the HathiTrust website. Books can be read online for an hour, but cannot be downloaded.

Have something checked out from the Libraries?

  • Renew your items online or hang on to them for later return. If you need to return items, contact Kate to set up a drop-off point.
  • The Libraries are suspending any billing and fines for overdue materials.

Libraries have a long tradition of providing faculty, students, and staff a welcoming space in which to gather, study, and think. With the unprecedented need to physically distance ourselves from one another while also remaining a connected community, it is difficult for us to close our doors to you. Fortunately, the Libraries also have decades of experience providing online and remote services, and we’re confident that we’ll get through this together.

Please keep in mind that Sue and I will be working remotely and that we, like you, are doing our best to take care of ourselves and our families in these strange times.

Together! M-I-Z!

The New PubMed Is Here!

New PubMed becomes the default in mid-May.

Highlights of New PubMed include:

  • Ability to cite references quickly in your preferred citation style format (AMA, APA, NLM, or MLA)
  • Best Match sorting algorithm that brings the most relevant results to the top of your search results
    • You can change the Sort Order in the Display Options
  • Better searching capabilities on your mobile device with a consistent look throughout all devices
  • Better at finding synonyms and accounting for British/American spelling differences

New PubMed still includes the features you rely on for searching, as well as saving and sharing your results:

  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography
  • Advanced search page to search for terms in a specific field, see the search details, review your search history and combine searches to create complex search strings
  • Save your search and create an email alert. Any saved searches and settings you previously created should be transferred automatically.

The National Library of Medicine has created a page with links to PubMed tutorials and handouts.

Not quite ready to make the switch? Legacy PubMed is still available…but it will be retired soon.
