We have created this guide to help you navigate through the University Libraries at UMKC.
Our librarians and staff are here to assist you with your research and teaching. A librarian is assigned to work with each department and school at UMKC to facilitate faculty access to library collections and services. See the Your Librarian tab above to find the librarian for your department!
