People doing research

As the special collections department of Missouri's land grant university, Special Collections is a resource for all of the people of the state. We are available to assist all people with their research needs and interests, whether in person, electronically, or by telephone. Since not all collections are fully cataloged, you are encouraged to ask us for information on materials in specific areas. Ask Us a Question
