Zalk Library Staffing Changes


Hello to Alex Boeckman! Alex is the Senior Library Information Specialist at Zalk Library. She’s your point person for circulation, InterLibrary Loan, and course reserves. Alex is a graduate of UMSL and has worked in the St. Charles City-County Library District and the Jefferson Middle School media center. Welcome, Alex!

Hello and Welcome Back to Rae Thudium! Rae is serving as the interim Head of Zalk Library while there is a national search for my replacement. Rae has her Master’s of Library & Information Science from Mizzou. As many of you know, Rae served as the interim Executive Assistant for Dean Henry during COVID. Her library experience includes stints at Ellis Library, the University Archives, and Daniel Boone Regional Library. Rae is your point person for reference, instruction, and scholarly communication issues.

Please help me welcome Alex and Rae to their new roles!

You can get in touch with Team Zalk 2.0 via

And a Goodbye from Kate

I will be leaving Mizzou at the end of July and relocating to New York City. It’s been the joy of my career to be your librarian for the last sixteen years. And, as the head of the library for the past nine, it’s been an honor to be a part of CVM’s mission to advance human and animal health. Thank you is not enough, but thank you.

M – I – Z – N – Y – C!

Zalk Library Updates

Update: 1 June 2021

Zalk Library is starting to implement the new MU Safety Recommendations

We will rearrange the chairs after the end of the current IP.

  • The Library is staffed Monday – Friday: 8:00 am – 5:00 pm (approximately).
  • After-hours access for CVM Affiliates is available via card reader. If you have card access to the Vet Med Bldg, you have card access to the library. All the rules and regs that apply during the day apply after hours.
  • Face Coverings Recommended based on vaccination status.
  • Covered Drinks & Snacks Allowed. Keep it clean! No meals or messy food. We reserve the right to ask you to eat items down in the Dogwood Cafe.
  • Quiet Study 24/7. Respect your classmate’s need for a quiet area. Take and make calls outside the library.
  • Service Animals Only. No pets.
  • Be Kind to One Another! As we transition a new world of optional face coverings and no distancing rules, be kind to one another. It’s an adjustment for all of us!

As always, Team Zalk is here for you!

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

Need a book chapter for your students? Email us at

Ways to contact us:

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
  • More information on Off-campus Access to Library Resources
  • Note: many libraries around the country still have limited access to their collections and/or have changed their lending policies. You may experience delays with requests from other libraries.

(Still) All in This Together!

Zalk Library: Closed Dec 24 – Jan 3

Happy Holidays!

Zalk Library will be closed starting on Thursday, December 24th. We’ll open back up on Monday, January 4th.

CVM Affiliates will still be able to swipe into the library — just remember that the rules and regs that apply when we’re open and staffed (face coverings; one person per table; no food and drink) still apply when we’re not there. So, be good for goodness sake!

All University Libraries are closed December 25 – January 3rd.

Here’s to a New Year!
