Ellis Library

Ellis Library, the main library on the MU campus, is located on Lowry Mall between Memorial Union and Jesse Hall. Ellis Library contains the principal resources for research in the humanities, the social sciences, and the basic sciences. Six additional branch libraries hold most material pertaining to health sciences, veterinary medicine, geology, engineering, math, and journalism. Two off-site storage facilities (the UM Libraries Depositories) hold the bulk of the libraries' older volumes.
