Events, Classes & Workshops: High School & Other Groups

High School Visits

MU Libraries offer tours and library instruction sessions for high school classes (Grades 9-12).  These sessions include a general orientation tour and/or an instruction session designed to introduce students to scholarly resources.  Classes of junior or senior-level students working on projects or an assignment are welcome to visit MU Libraries for an instruction session.

To request a tour and/or an instruction session, please complete the online request form. Be sure to provide details of the assignment or project.


  • High school instruction sessions and tours are scheduled as staff time permits and are based on classroom availability .

  • It is best to schedule library visits during less busy times of  the semester, usually when university classes are not in session (i.e., Spring & Thanksgiving Breaks; semester breaks.). It is difficult to schedule library visits during busy periods of semesters especially the first few weeks of semesters and the last two weeks of semesters.

  • Teacher wishing to arrange class visits should contact the Library at least 2 weeks in advance to request a visit.

  • Students should be accompanied by adequate number of teachers and chaperones. Please arrange to have a minimum of one adult for each group of 10-12 students.

  • Please limit school group size to a maximum of 30. The Electronic Classroom can only accommodate a maximum of about 25.

  • Ellis Library is a place for quiet research, consultation and study. Appropriate conduct is expected from all who use the facilities. Complaints regarding inappropriate behavior from school groups may result in that school from being denied permission to visit in the future.
  • Arrange for borrowing privileges ahead of time.  Contact Tammy Green in the Inter-Library Loan Department if students    need to check out materials
