Guest Borrower Program
Guests of the library who are at least 18 years old and wish to check out library materials may join the Guest Borrower Program. Join at the Miller Nichols Library First Floor Service Desk.
Guest Researcher Program
For a fee, individual researchers not affiliated with UMKC and groups such as law firms, businesses, and other organizations with specialized information and research needs can obtain services and materials through UMKC Libraries. The mix of services is tailored to the particular requirements of our clients and reflects the Libraries' commitment to the Kansas City area.
Friends of the Library
Friends contributing at least $50 annually through the Friends of the Library may receive borrowing privileges. Eligible members wishing to activate their account may do so by contacting the Libraries’ Administrative Office at (816) 235-1531.
Students, faculty, and staff at Kansas City area colleges and universities and at MOBIUS member libraries are eligible for Reciprocal Borrowing with other libraries. Most colleges and universities in the Kansas City area are participants. University ID is required.
