Got a Project You’re Proud Of? Submit to the Undergraduate Research Contest

If you are an undergraduate student who completed a research project in the last few semesters, you can submit your work to the University Libraries Undergraduate Research Contest.

You already did the hard work! Now just submit it; it’s so easy!

You submit your already-complete project as-is, and the only extra work is including a brief Research Process Statement with details about your research process.

A “research project” can be a traditional research paper, a musical composition, a work of art, a video, a web page, or other creative work.

Not sure what to submit? Check out past submissions for inspiration.

The deadline for submission of all materials is January 31, 2023. Winners will be announced in February 2023.

Contact Jennifer Walker if you have any questions: WalkerJE@missouri.edu

Engineering Library By the Numbers

We couldn’t help but notice the library is more lively these days.  So we pulled some statistics to see if we could back it up. Below are our January – November gate count numbers before, during, and after the pandemic.

2019 2020 2021 2022
143,241 43,764 36,889 71,616

 

Our study room use is almost to capacity.  So far in 2022, we have had 1,812 reservations totaling 3,223 hours of use!

We love this upward trend and are hopeful that our numbers will continue to grow.

Christina Pryor Appointed Director of Health Sciences Library and Associate University Librarian for Specialized Libraries

Christina Pryor has been appointed Director of Health Sciences Library and Associate University Librarian for Specialized Libraries, effective June 1, 2022. She has served admirably in her interim roles at the University of Missouri, and we welcome her permanent status at the Libraries. Chris joined the Libraries in 2018 as the Missouri Coordinator for the Network of the National Library of Medicine, and she began overseeing Health Sciences Library operations in December, 2019.

This position is a leadership role within the University Libraries, including oversight for libraries in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Veterinary Medicine, and the Missouri School of Journalism. As an AUL, she also serves as a member of the Libraries Management Team.

Chris brings excellent experience and skills to this position. She came to the University of Missouri in 2018 from the University of Washington Health Sciences Library in Seattle, where she served as the assistant director and community health education coordinator. Her previous positions include consulting and education services manager for Amigos Library Services, reference manager for the St. Louis County Library System, and medical research librarian for Covidien/Mallinckrodt. Over her entire career, she has worked to emphasize the importance of health information to a wide variety of constituents. She has a Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Missouri and a Bachelor of Journalism from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.

Pryor is active in state, regional and national professional organizations. She is currently serving as President of the Reference and User Services Association, a division of ALA.

home Cycle of Success, Engineering Library, Staff news Cycle of Success: Inge Creates DOE Index

Cycle of Success: Inge Creates DOE Index

Mara Inge, a senior library information specialist in the Engineering Library and Technology Commons (ELTC), has created a master index of all 36,729 conference proceedings titles from the Engineering Library and Technology Commons’ Department of Energy (DOE) uncatalogued microfiche collection. Prior to Mara’s project, the only way to locate a fiche was to look for a title in the Office of Scientific and Technical Information’s (OSTI) database of DOE information, visit ELTC or another library with DOE fiche, open a cabinet drawer, and start searching. Stephen Pryor, digital scholarship librarian, provided technical assistance with the project.

In addition to all of the titles that she entered into the index, Mara also entered metadata for proceedings not previously in the OSTI database—about 1104 titles that, for all practical purposes, were not findable online at all. Her work is a wonderful way to promote this hidden collection.

The MU Libraries plan to make the index available for searching; meanwhile, please email Mara at  englib@missouri.edu with any questions about DOE conference proceedings.

home Engineering Library Remote Group Study Tools

Remote Group Study Tools

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, our group study rooms are offline for the semester.  But we know you still want and need to study together, so here are a few resources you may use for remote group work.

Visit Keep Learning on the University of Missouri System website to find information about using Canvas, Zoom and more.

In addition, Microsoft 365 provides a suite of cloud-based applications. This includes Microsoft Teams, which is a collaboration tool designed to allow groups of people to work together on an initiative. Learn more at this webinar.

Additional apps are also available through Teams, including the project management tool Trello.

Starting this fall, all UM System faculty, staff and students have access to Google Apps for Higher Education (G Suite).

Mizzou students have access to a variety of online tools so they can choose the tools that will work best for them.

In addition, Ellis library has set up two rooms – 114 and 114A  for socially-distanced group work.

Overdue Library Books

When we closed rather abruptly in March, we instructed everyone to hang onto their library books as we didn’t have a safe way for you to return them.  Now that we’ve been back up and running for a while, we’ve got it all figured out!  If you have any overdue library books lying around, please return them to the book drop outside of the Engineering Library.  Starting October 1st, you will begin to see our typical courtesy notices in your email.  Don’t panic! We’re just asking that you return your books as soon as you can.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns please email us at eltc@missouri.edu.
