ELTC Spring Semester Hours and Policies

Welcome new students and welcome back for those of you returning from Fall Semester!

Our hours for the Spring Semester, beginning January 18th, are a bit different from Fall Semester:

Monday – Thursday:  8am – 7pm
Friday:  8am – 5pm
Saturday: Closed
Sunday:  1pm – 7pm

EL&TC Policies:

  • Face Coverings Required at all times.
  • No Food OR Drink.Unfortunately, due to a lack of compliance last semester, we will not allow food or drink in the library.
  • No moving furniture.  We have rearranged library seating to maintain 6’ and comply with social distancing requirements. As a result, our seating capacity is approximately 64. Please don’t move chairs and tables around.
  • Study Rooms will be offline.  In order to maintain social distancing, our study rooms will not be available this semester.
  • Library materials will be quarantined for 3 days.  This means it might take longer to get library materials than you are used to. No late fees will be charged due to materials being in quarantine.
  • Class Reserves will be limited to electronic only.  In the event you need something that is not already available as an e-reserve, please contact us at the email address below. We are here to help!
  • Equipment checkout is available.  Equipment will checkout for the same periods as before, we will sanitize equipment prior to returning them to circulation.

Please Note:

Patrons who are disrespectful, are not wearing face coverings, are not wearing face coverings properly (covering mouth AND nose) at all times, move furniture, or engage in group study without maintaining social distancing will be asked to leave the library. Repeat offenders will be reported per Show Me Renewal Guidelines.

Our hours and policies are only through Spring Break (March 27th – April 4th).  We will re-evaluate our hours and policies at that time.

Book Talk with Kristie C. Wolferman: The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, a History

Date: Thursday, January 28, 2021
Time: 4 – 5 pm
Online event on Zoom

REGISTER HERE

The monumental building known today as the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art opened in 1933 owing to a set of marvelously serendipitous circumstances.

Kristie C. Wolferman, author of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art: A History, will tell us the story of the widowed, reclusive Mary Atkins who left funds to build an art museum, and of the newspaper publisher William Rockhill Nelson who bequeathed $11 million to purchase works of art. After several others close to Nelson provided funds for housing that collection, trustees of multiple estates were able to come together to erect a major museum where none had existed before.

Over the years, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art has grown in stature and holdings. It is now known not only for its outstanding American art, but for its Chinese and American Indian art collections and for photographs. Ms. Wolferman will virtually walk us through the museum’s history and introduce us to its dazzling 21st century renovations, including the new Bloch Building and the redesigned American Wing.

home Gateway Carousel ELTC, Resources and Services Call for Proposals: Spring 2021 Missouri Affordable and Open Educational Resources Symposium

Call for Proposals: Spring 2021 Missouri Affordable and Open Educational Resources Symposium

Deadline for Submissions: Monday, February 1, 2021

The Missouri Affordable and Open Educational Resources Symposium invites you to share your research, ideas and best practices for using, creating or adapting A&OER.

Conference Theme and Schedule:

The theme of this year’s Symposium will be centered around the idea of CARE, an acronym for Collaborating and Adapting/Adopting Resources for Equity. We would like to explore how the A&OER community cares for others by advocating for accessibility and equity of materials. With many conference themes centered around Covid-19 and its impact on students and faculty, we thought we would take this concept one step further and explore how the use of A&OER can address the issues of unequal access to educational materials on college campuses that have become so apparent during the pandemic. This theme is inspired by the importance of using Affordable and Open Educational Resources as a means to champion social equity by ensuring accessibility of materials to all students.

The Symposium will be held virtually on March 3 – 5, 2021. Click here for more information.

Proposals:

We welcome proposals for presentations, breakout sessions, panel discussions, and roundtables from faculty, librarians, instructional designers, students, and any other educator or constituent involved in creating, using, or adapting Affordable and Open Educational Resources. Proposals should keep the conference theme in mind, however, you are encouraged to shape your proposed sessions to present your unique experiences with A&OER. We strongly encourage you to actively engage your session participants with a hands-on activity or by providing them with other material they can use.

Submission Details:

  • The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2021.
  • Proposals should include: a Title; Abstract (approximately 250 words); Audience Learning Outcomes; and Information for each speaker (name, title, institution, short bio, and email address)
  • Proposals can be submitted here.
  • Submissions will be evaluated on their relevance and ability to contribute to the best practices of using, creating, adapting, and adopting A&OER.
  • The Symposium Planning Committee will notify presenters of their decision by February 15, 2021.

If you have any questions please contact Lindsay Schmitz, University of Missouri St. Louis, schmitzl@umsl.edu or Scott Curtis, University of Missouri Kansas City, curtissa@umkc.edu.
