  • No guest computer logins are available at this time as priority use of library computers is reserved for UMKC-affiliated users. See information about library resources and services for UMKC alumni and retirees during COVID-19.
  • Guests at the library can connect to the UMKC wifi with a guest password, but it does not provide access to electronic library resources.
