No-Touch Services

  1. When MU Libraries re-open, you will not be permitted to enter the stacks to select materials; only library staff will be allowed to do this.
  2. Find the material(s) you need through our library catalog by searching keywords or a specific author or title.
  3. When you have found the item(s) you would like to borrow, you will place a hold by logging into your My Library account (first-time users: view the special instructions on that login page).
  4. Your materials will be ready for pickup in the Drinko Library lobby within 24 hours during regular business hours.
  5. Contact us if you have any questions:

Building Safety

  • You MUST have your MUID to enter the building.
  • You MUST be wearing a mask.
  • You MUST maintain social distancing practices.
  • You MUST NOT move the library furniture (desks, chairs, etc.).
  • Only one person at a time is allowed in Library Study Rooms.

Building/Seat Scheduling

  1. Because the libraries are taking extra cautions to keep our students safe, there are new rules for using study rooms and reserving seats in Drinko Library.
  2. More information will be available soon.

Research Help Online

  1. The Drinko Library Reference Desk has been temporarily removed, so the librarians are now offering virtual research support only. (No drop-ins allowed.)
  2. Make your research appointment using our Consultation Scheduler.
  3. Once you have selected a day/time, you will see phone, email, or live video chat options for your appointment. No matter which option you choose, you will receive instructions for connecting with your librarian in the confirmation and reminder emails.
  4. For quick answers to questions during business hours chat with a librarian. (Please note that the chat option is not intended for in-depth research.)
  5. How to do research
