The library now has four laptops available at the Circulation Desk for two hour checkout. Just bring your valid MU ID. There are both Macs and PCs, loaded with various software such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, ITunes, and much more.

If you provide links to journal articles, you’ll need to change your URLs after this semester.
If you are re-using links next semester, you’ll need to edit any links that use mulibraries.1cate.com as part of the URL. Find and replace mulibraries.1cate.com with finditatmu.library.missouri.edu .
The old links you’re using now should continue to work for the rest of the semester, but after that, they will stop working.
Starting now, you can create links in the new Findit@MU Article Finder by clicking “Get Short URL” on the article finder page as shown here.
Over the next few days, some changes will take place in Findit@MU article linking. You will still see the same familiar button , but the screens along the way will look a bit different.
If you run across any problems, please use the button to let us know. (No need to include your name.)
