Zalk Library Updates

Update: 8 January 2021

Zalk Library is open to CVM Affiliates.

  • The Library is staffed Monday – Friday: 8:00 am – 5:00 pm (approximately).
  • After-hours access for CVM Affiliates is available via card reader. If you have card access to the Vet Med Bldg, you have card access to the library. All the rules and regs that apply during the day apply after hours.
  • Face Coverings Required at all times.
  • No Food or Drink We see this no food or drink policy as a temporary measure.
  • One Person per Table. Our seating capacity is 30. We’ve set up the seating to maintain 6′ social distancing. Please don’t move the chairs around (seriously, don’t even think about it…). Sit in the designated spots; do not sit on the floor. We’ll have wipes and disinfectant near the entrance for you to wipe down your areas.
  • Quiet Study We try to maintain a quiet environment in the library. While the library is staffed, we will be propping the doors open (one less thing for everyone to touch) — so it may be a little noisier in the library than usual.
  • Library Staff We’ll be in our offices with our masks on. Give us a wave to catch our attention if you need assistance. Even though we won’t be standing at the circulation desk to greet you when you come in the library, we want you to know you are welcome! We are smiling at you with our eyes! SMIZE! Thanks in advance for your patience if we can’t get to you right away (we may be on a Zoom call, etc.).

  • Use the Journal Finder to get to specific journal titles. The Journal Finder will let you know which years are available electronically.
  • We have a ton of ebooks!
  • Really just want PubMed? Bookmark the “MU” PubMed link to be connected to the FindIt@MU information.

  • Use VPN
  • More information on Off-campus Access to Library Resources
  • Note: many libraries around the country still have limited access to their collections and/or have changed their lending policies. You may experience delays with requests from other libraries.

Curbside Pickup Still Available

If you prefer not to come into the library to pick up items, we can also arrange a specific time for curbside (aka “parking lot”) pickup. Once you receive the email that your items are ready for you, either give us a call or reply to that email (vetlib@missouri.edu) to make arrangements. Ellis Library curbside pickup is also still available. How to Request Items via MERLIN

Together! M-I-Z!
