Research Appointments

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.


Special Collections is open to all users, whether or not you are affiliated with the University of Missouri. If you are not a student, please use the button below to schedule your appointment. MU Students: We are currently experiencing difficulties with the MU Connect System. Please use the button below to schedule appointments instead of going through MU Connect.

If you are not already a registered Special Collections user, you will be asked to fill out a short registration form.
