Changes at the Health Sciences Library

Welcome to all our new students, faculty, and staff and welcome back to those returning!

You may have noticed some changes in the library over the past few weeks, but we’re still here providing you the resources and services you need.

  • We are increasing Health Sciences Library hours starting August 22nd.
    • Sunday, 11am-9pm
    • Monday-Thursday, 7am-9pm
    • Friday, 7am-6pm
    • Saturday, 9am-6pm
  • The 3rd floor is now open for studying and the study rooms are available to reserve.
  • 3rd floor study rooms now have monitors to make group work easier.
  • Comfy seating is back on the main floor and ready to be used.
  • The computer lab on the main floor  is available to use when not otherwise reserved for workshops.
  • Bike desks are now on the main floor facing the north windows. Exercise your body while you exercise your mind.
  • Access to the Health Sciences Library will only be accessible to those with badges authorized to enter the School of Medicine and MU Healthcare buildings.
  • Face masks are required in the library if you are not fully vaccinated and for vaccinated individuals when social distancing isn’t possible.

And please excuse our noise as we move the books on our 1st floor to off site storage. With 90% of our collection online, you will see minimal disruption in access to the materials you need. For the items moved into storage, you can still request those items and pick them up at our service desk.

As always, you can contact us at with any questions you may or contact one of our librarians if you need assistance.
