The University Libraries consist of the Miller Nichols Library, the Health Sciences Library and the Dental Library, and we partner with the Leon E. Bloch Law Library. Our mission states that the University Libraries is an essential partner in intellectual discovery, knowledge creation, and empowerment.
The University Libraries provide research facilities, resources and services in support of academic programs. We partner with the campus Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) and are committed to providing services and assistance to all members of the UMKC Community. Information about services for individuals with disabilities can be found on the Web site at http://library.umkc.edu/disability and by calling 816-235-1508 or the Miller Nichols Library Reference Desk at 816-235-1534. The Library accepts calls through the National Relay Service (711) and the Missouri Relay Service (800-735-2966).
The Miller Nichols Library serves primarily the College of Arts and Sciences, the Conservatory of Music and Dance, and the schools of management, education, pharmacy, biological sciences and computing and engineering. Specialized libraries are located in the schools of law, dentistry and medicine. UMKC faculty, students and staff have access to all collections and services, subject to the policies in effect at each library location.
