Research appointments are not required, but they are recommended during the academic year. We schedule appointments in 15-minute increments. You can stay and research as long as you need to; the appointment is just your check-in time. Please bring a photo ID to your appointment and familiarize yourself with the reading room rules before your visit.
University of Missouri Students
Registered undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Missouri should make appointments through MU Connect.
Once you are logged in, search for MU Libraries Special Collections in My Success Network to schedule your appointment. No separate registration form is necessary. You will be asked to read and acknowledge the reading room rules when you arrive.
