Remote Library Services

When you need or prefer to work remotely, there are many ways the Libraries can provide you with expert help and services. Always check the Libraries’ website for the latest information about our hours and services.


1. What if my stuff is due while we are gone?

2. Fines

Overdue fines can be discussed / waived when students return to campus.  For those of you have borrowed from other libraries in our library consortium, we are working to waive fines for the time being for borrowers from our member institutions; we are still working out the kinks of how to actually do that, but we are committed to that.  For specific questions, please contact the UMSL Library Public Service Desk at 314-516-5057.

3. Can I return books?

Books and media, including MOBIUSProspector, and Interlibrary Loan materials, may be returned to any University of Missouri Library or to one of our book returns. 

4. Can I get articles and chapters I need digitally?

Probably, yes! Why probably? Because Interlibrary Loan works by our library contacting other libraries to help us provide materials to you by scanning items they own, but as many other libraries have closed the demand and supply may not work out favorably.
