We had such a great response last year to the Mammogram Van on campus that we have scheduled to bring it back! The van will be on campus Tuesday, April 11 and Thursday, June 1 from 8:15am until 3:00pm. The Mammogram Van will be located on Hitt St. across from the Fine Arts Building, where the food trucks are normally parked.
If you are 40 or older and have not had a mammogram within the last year, let’s get you scheduled!
To book your appointment please email me back directly with your top three time slots and the date and I will confirm a time for you.
As always, please reach out if you have any questions. Have a great week!

We are excited to announce that Michaelle Dorsey, a senior library specialist in collection services, will be appointed as the new Special Collections librarian, focusing on preservation. Her new position will be effective September 1, 2021.
Over her years at Mizzou, Michaelle Dorsey has acquired the required education and skills for this position. In addition, she has demonstrated a rare devotion to her craft. During the aftermath of the Ellis Library fire in 2011, Michaelle stepped up to the challenge of providing leadership for the recovery effort. She received the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in 2017. She has acquired additional training in book preservation techniques in addition to her master’s in library and information science from MU that makes her uniquely qualified for this position. She also received her bachelor of arts in English from Truman State University.
In addition, she can provide a strong voice for advice regarding the materials that would be best digitized, thus providing additional guidance to the Digital Services department. To quote the findings of the MU Librarians and Archivists Council Promotions Committee, “Michaelle has a wealth of experience directly tied to this new position. In fact, she has served as the head of the preservation unit for 18 years and has over 20 years of experience in the field. She has capably served on many library and university committees, and she continues to gain new knowledge through her book conservation training with James Downey.”
Thanks to Dr. Nobel Cunningham and Caroline McBride French, whose bequest gifts provided the MU Libraries with the funds for this position.
Please join the Libraries in congratulating Michaelle Dorsey on her new position and wishing her success in her new endeavors.

MU has made the decision to require symptom checks through the #CampusClear app in order to enter some buildings on campus. The complete list of buildings hasn’t been made public, but Ellis Library will be one of the buildings. We believe the Rec Center and the Student Unions will also have this requirement. The campus-wide implementation is underway, and Kathy Peters is working with SOS staffing services to manage the screening station, which will be at the west entrance. Although a date hasn’t been confirmed, this will probably start at the beginning of October. All patrons and staff will be screened during all normal business hours of Ellis Library. Staff who come in when the library is not open to the public will not be screened, but remember that supervisors are allowed to ask you if you have checked your symptoms. If someone chooses not to use the #CampusClear app, there will be an alternative symptom check method.
We will keep you updated as we receive further information about this new procedure. In the meantime, you should download the app and check your symptoms daily.
