Bring a photo ID! Your MU student ID or a driver's license will be fine.
Most materials can't be checked out, but you can put them on hold in the reading room.
Allowed at the reading tables: pencils, paper, laptop computers, mobile devices (silenced), and cameras. You'll be asked to store your backpack, coat, and other personal belongings elsewhere.
You can take pictures with your phone or a camera. But remember - no flash! Special Collections staff can make photos or scans for you for a fee.
Some materials in Special Collections are not in the MERLIN catalog. The Special Collections Web site is the best place to start.
Limit your search to Special Collections using the "Specific Library Location" option under Advanced Search. See the "How to Search MERLIN" tab above.
