1,000 Documents Added to the MU Extension Collection in MOspace

Since the beginning of 2020, Mizzou Libraries’ Digital Services department has added 1,040 MU Extension publications to MOspace, the University of Missouri System institutional repository. These include historical and current publications. We digitized older publications, dating back to 1915 — “Reducing waste in feeding hay” — and added publications from the MU Extension website through 2019.

Extension publications cover a variety of topics including farming, farm animals, gardening, clothing tips, healthy diets and managing a club. Here are two to get you started in your exploration of the collection.

For hobbyists, learn about braided rugs, sewed rugs, crocheted rugs, woven rugs, knitted rugs and hooked rugs.

This publication gives us a reminder that in the past the United States has discussed plans to adopt the metric system. As noted in the publication:

“By the time 1980 rolls around … the United States will be well on its way to adopting the International Standard of Units or, as it is more commonly referred to, the metric system. The International System of Units was formally adopted by the countries of the world in 1960. This system has six standard units from which all measurement can be derived. These six units are: meter (m) … kilogram (kg) … second (s) … degree Kelvin … ampere (amp) … candela (cd).”–First page.

Note: For many topics, particularly those related to farming, gardening and food, always check the MU Extension website for current information.

Start Using the #CampusClear App Today

At the Mizzou Libraries, we are concerned about the health and safety of our Tiger community. Part of that effort is creating a culture of awareness by requiring faculty, staff and students to monitor their health daily. The practice is also recommended for visitors. Now, self-monitoring is made easier with #CampusClear.

#CampusClear is a self-screening mobile application designed to support campus community members as they monitor their day-to-day health and respond to potential COVID-19 symptoms. #CampusClear provides a daily push notification and self-monitoring only takes a few seconds. The app will also act as a pass to provide students, faculty and staff access to designated locations in the future.

To sign up:

  1. Access the app on the App Store, Google Play or via the web.
  2. Indicate if you are a student, an employee or a visitor. Faculty, staff and students should use their university email address to automatically register with the university. No other contact information is needed.
  3. Visitors will be asked to select the school they wish to visit and may provide either their phone number or personal email address to sign in.
  4. Users will be asked to finish authentication via the email they provided for registration.

Individual and Group Study Spaces in Ellis Library – Fall 2020 Update

To help with social distancing and the need to take classes online, all reservable study rooms are now designated for individual use only. Reservations are for two-hours and each student can have one active reservation at a time. As soon as that reservation is complete or canceled, a new reservation can be made. You can find out more about available study rooms in Ellis Library at:

Study Room Information

Reserve a Study Room

If you need group study space, rooms 114 and 114A will be available with furniture arranged to accommodate groups of two to four socially-distanced students. In 114A, we can seat up to sixteen students (in groups of fours) as a large collaboration space. Conversation will be allowed in these rooms.

Please do not add or remove chairs from study rooms. Further, the Libraries follow University guidelines and require the use of face coverings in all library spaces including single-occupancy study rooms. The only exception to this policy is when seated and eating on the lower level, or when scheduled to film or record in the Digital Media & Innovation Lab.

 

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.

Disability Culture Month: Movies that Depict Disability

September is Disability Culture Month at Mizzou. For the past few years, the University Libraries have partnered with the Disability Center to purchase a movie that depicts a person with a disability. Below are some of the movies about disability that you can access through the Libraries.

  • Deej (DVD and streaming): Deej is DJ Savarese, a non-talking autistic man who was abandoned by his birth parents and remained uneducated until his adoptive parents helped him pursue an education. This film deals with Deej’s transition to college life and the difficulties and growth that Deej pursues at Oberlin.
  • Notes on Blindness (DVD): In the summer of 1983, just days before the birth of his first son, writer and theologian John Hull went blind. In order to make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette.
  • Unrest (DVD): When Harvard Ph.D. student Jennifer Brea is struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden, she sets out on a virtual journey to document her story as she fights a disease that medicine forgot.

Here are some more relevant resources at Mizzou Libraries:

Curbside Pickup at the Engineering Library

We are so pleased to be open to patrons once again!  For those patrons who do not feel comfortable coming into the library in person, we will still offer curbside pickup.

How does Engineering Library Curbside Pickup work?

Simply request your library material through the MERLIN catalog and choose “ENGR Library pickup” as your location.  You will receive an email letting you know your hold is at the Engineering Library and ready for you to pick up.  If you would prefer curbside, simply call 573-882-2379 or email eltc@missouri.edu to arrange a pickup time.  We will be open for curbside pickup M-F 11:00am – 1:00pm.

When you arrive at Lafferre, call the library at 573-882-2379 and we will arrange to bring your materials to your car.  Please have your ID card out and ready to view – you can just show it to us through the window if you like.  We will have your materials bagged up and ready to go.  Please have your trunk open to ensure a contact-less delivery.

How long must I wait to pick up my books after I place the request/hold?

We will try as hard as possible to fill requests quickly.  However, we are quarantining most library materials for a period of 3 days.  This may lead to a longer than usual wait times.

Can I get books from other libraries?

Books from other libraries may be picked up via curbside pickup.  This may take a few additional days due to quarantining of books and materials.  If you wish to pick up these books from the library they reside in, please contact that library directly for specific details.
