Thank you for your suggestion. We did change around many things with our website redesign in our goal to focus the website on the sources that UMKC students and faculty use the most often. During that redesign process Google Scholar was removed from the new Health Sciences Library homepage. Our website work is an iterative process, and we will be adding Google Scholar back to the Health Sciences Library homepage under the Articles & Databases section.

Thank you for your feedback. We've been working on making a number of changes that reflect your ideas, as well as some of our own. Let us know if you like the changes, or if you have further suggestions.
Regarding your suggestion of a larger monitor - at present the cost to increase the size is prohibitive and we feel that there are more , but we will make that a consideration as we continue to improve and upgrade the technology in the library. We appreciate your comments!
I can definitely see how this would be frustrating. We have the swipe/release system in place because the high cost of color prints could wipe out your quota very quickly with just one mistake. However, we would like to see if there is an option for typing in your ID if possible, and will be working with campus IS (who manages printing on campus) on this. Hopefully we'll be able to make the changes you suggest!
That's a fun idea, and we'll forward your suggestion to the Office of Student Involvement. They are the folks who plan campus activities for Finals Week. Thanks for the suggestion!
Original suggestion: Please send Roo Mascot to library for photos & destress during finals. Students could take photos with him (her) & post on Facebook…this would be FREE publicity for UMKC & increase morale!
This is a great idea! As we look at expanding our hours, we are definitely also looking at expanding our staffing, and we'll be sure to increase opportunities for students to work in the library wherever it makes sense.
Original suggestion: If we have a 24/7 library, can that create more jobs for people who need an on campus job? I am more than willing to work at like 2 am, if that means I can study and be on campus
