Please fill out survey linked below by October 25 to help us make Ellis Library work for students!
Visit Ellis Library immediately after the Homecoming Parade on Saturday, October 22, for refreshments and family activities. The first 100 kids will receive a free mini pumpkin. This event is free and open to the public.
“The Books of 1922” celebrates the centennial of some notable works, including James Joyce’s Ulysses, T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room, Claude McKay’s Harlem Shadows and other books that became 20th-century standouts. The exhibit displays first edition covers and rare illustrations of Ulysses by Matisse, exploring the evolution of texts from manuscripts to beloved library copies bearing annotations by generations of students. This exhibit was created by the team of Associate Professor Frances Dickey and English major Claire Dooley.
Voice In is a podcast about Mizzou students. This project of the Digital Media and Innovation Lab in Ellis Library was created to learn about students’ lives and their relationship to libraries.
This is the first in the series of short interviews on Studying Abroad. In this episode, Nav Khanal, head of e-learning technologies, talks to Andrew Whelihan about his study abroad experiences in Oviedo Spain, and preparations for an upcoming one in Lima, Peru.

It is the nature of life in a college town like Columbia that people come and go.
And while we’re sad to say goodbye to folks, it does at least mean that we have the pleasure of welcoming them back again. So it is that we’re thrilled to welcome Devoney Looser back to Columbia to talk about her brand-new book, Sister Novelists. For readers of Prairie Fires and The Peabody Sisters, this is a fascinating, insightful biography of the most famous sister novelists before the Brontës. In a starred review, Kirkus describes the book like this: “a triumph of literary detective work and storytelling, this is a must-read for the Austen and Brontë crowd,”
Devoney will be appearing at Skylark in conversation with another well-known Austen aficionado, Janet Saidi of KBIA. It’s going to be a dazzling evening!
Edward McCain, the Digital Curator of Journalism at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute is retiring from the MU Libraries as of September 30th. He has been with the libraries for the last nine years and has made great strides moving the efforts of digital news preservation forward here at the University as well as laid groundwork that could have a direct impact on the news industry. Through Edward’s efforts, he worked with a collaborative team that was awarded a Mellon grant that produced the 2021 report, “Endangered But Not Too Late: The State of Digital News Preservation,” which provided actionable recommendations of how to work collaboratively to advance digital news preservation into reality.
Thank you Edward for everything that you have accomplished and please join me in wishing him all the best with his retirement!

The PowerNotes browser extension allows you to automatically capture text, take notes, and export citations in an outline format, all without ever leaving the article PDF or website you’re currently reading. Designed to seamlessly integrate research into writing, the outline you build in PowerNotes while researching can be exported into either a Word document or Excel file (perfect for those systematic review tables). This workshop will focus on learning the basics of PowerNotes, identifying ways that it can make your research and writing easier. It will also briefly touch on ways this tool can be used for instruction, helping guide your students through interaction with readings and source material.
Please bring your laptop if you are attending the in person session.

You’ve done the research; now make sure your work gets noticed and makes an impact! Learn how to identify publishing venues, evaluate journals, and avoid “predatory publishers,” so that your research gets the visibility it deserves.
Presented by Janice Dysart, Research and Instructional Services Librarian at the University of Missouri Libraries.
I emailed (see below) everyone earlier in the week that we need help with the Homecoming Open House at Ellis Library. I wanted to let you know that LMT has approved overtime pay for staff members who want to help out. You may also be able to work out leave time with your supervisor if that is your preference. Also, if you have any student workers who might want some extra hours, please let them know about this opportunity. And thanks to Cindy Cotner and Ying Hu who have already said they would pitch in!
“Good morning! We will be hosting our annual Ellis Library Open House after the Homecoming Parade on Oct. 22. The event will be from 10 am to noon, and we will also need some help with set up starting around 9 am. It’s always a fun event, we provide snacks and drinks, plus family friendly activities, such as button making and decorating mini pumpkins.
If you can help out (please check with your supervisor first), please let me know by the end of this week.”
