Library Tour

In order to learn more about the library spaces and people that can help you, I will take you on a private tour based on your questions and interests. But first, consider the following questions to reflect on what you already know about libraries:

  • How have you used libraries in the past? What kinds of things were you looking for?
  • How did you find things within the library?
  • Were you comfortable in the library? Why or why not?

Now what questions do you have about MU's library? Brainstorm questions on this padlet. (Click the + in the circle to add questions). Click the heart if you want to upvote someone else's question.

Finding your way at the library

If you didn't make a tour, check out the below guide for an introduction to library building and its physical resources.

Navigating the online library

The majority of library resources can be accessed online. You can navigate to many from the various links on our homepage: or from our Research Guides. Below are quick ways to get started.

Finding other university resources for your classes

Feel free to ask a librarian if you're not sure where to go to find answers or other resources for your classes. Many services to support students academically are located within the University College. 

Below are some guides/links that should help with commonly asked questions.

Where can I get my textbook?
