Special Collections serves MU students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Any researcher interested in using the collections is welcome, and research appointments are not necessary. However, if you plan to use posters, maps, or other large materials, please email us at least 24 hours in advance so that we have time to prepare the materials for use.
The Hitt Street Visitor’s Parking lot, immediately south of Ellis Library, is restricted to parking for persons with disabilities. Metered parking is available on Hitt Street and in the Turner Avenue and Hitt Street Parking Garages.
Here's a step-by-step guide to requesting materials from Special Collections to use in your research.
