Update on Library Services

As part of our phased-in plan to increase library services, the book drop at the west entrance of Ellis Library (near Speaker’s Circle) is open. We cannot accept books at any other book drops. You may return or renew library books. Because we have limited staff in the building, there will be a delay in staff checking in your items, and returned items may not be removed immediately from your account.

Currently, we cannot accept donated materials that have not already been approved.

Starting June 1, we will resume our scan and deliver service. The Libraries will retrieve and scan periodical articles, book chapters, proceedings, technical reports, government documents and any part of other printed publications held in the Mizzou Libraries.

The Libraries plan to offer pre-arranged check out of books, with curbside pickup, on July 1.

Even though the buildings will remain closed for awhile, the Libraries will continue reference chat, remote consultations and instructional support throughout the summer.

Plans are being made for how to safely open Ellis Library and the specialized libraries for the fall semester.
