Mold FAQ and How You Can Help

FAQ Regarding Mold at Off-site Storage Facility

In October 2013, mold was discovered on books and bound journal volumes in one of MU Libraries' off-site storage facilities (UMLD2). This facility holds approximately 600,000 volumes belonging to the MU campus.

MU Libraries has established a Collection Enhancement Fund to assist our response to the mold damage. Your gift will be used to treat, relocate and in some cases, replace items impacted by mold. Our goal is to ensure the MU Libraries' ability to serve the needs of our users is not compromised by this sad event. A gift of any amount is greatly appreciated!

No one cares more than we do about preserving knowledge and scholarship. As we work through our response plan, know that we are making every effort to save items with special value and to retain ready access to information in the collection. 

If you would like to help us preserve this collection, click here to donate to our Collection Enhancement Fund.

What's new about the site?

  • Responsive web design so that the site looks good on tablets and mobile devices
  • New New Books format

  • Some (major) behind the scenes improvements to the scripting language (thank you, Mike, Mathew, Caryn, and Ernest!!)

Please let us know if you have any trouble with the new site.

home Resources and Services, Zalk Veterinary Medical Library New in PubMed: “Available at MU”

New in PubMed: “Available at MU”

Now, when you search PubMed from MU Libraries pages or by using this special PubMed link, you’ll notice an Available at MU filter in the upper right area of the results screen.


The Available at MU filter will show you what’s available online or in a campus library.

You can use Available at MU when you’re in a time crunch and just want to see what’s available on campus right now. Available at MU is far more comprehensive and accurate than PubMed’s standard “Text Availability” filters because it knows what MU Libraries subscribes to in print and electronically.

To use this filter when you’re logged into your personal My NCBI account, you’ll need to create a custom filter. From a PubMed results page, click on “Manage Filters” and then “Create custom filter.” The query terms are:

Loprovumochsclib[sb] OR free full text [sb]


Save filter as: Available at MU
