Ellis Library Fall Hours 2016

Mon-Thu:  7:30am-Midnight
Fri:  7:30am-7pm
Sat:  9am-7pm
Sun:  Noon- Midnight

The University Libraries will reduce hours for Ellis Library (and some of the specialized libraries) at the beginning of the fall semester. Ellis Library will no longer be open 24 hours, but will close most days at midnight.

In order to maintain the highest service level possible, the Libraries have increased the hours for online chat access to librarians. Students and researchers may ask questions online almost any time of day or night.

In addition, Ellis Library will be open 24 hours the week before and the week of Finals.

In addition to reducing hours, the Libraries have eliminated eight positions and will be cutting approximately $1 million in collections. These measures result from a lack of student fee revenue as well as the 5% cut to MU general operating funds. The Libraries administration continues to seek funds through a variety of sources.

All hours for Ellis Library and the specialized libraries can be found at
