Yes! Community members are welcome to use the library. Miller Nichols Library is open to the public, and all books and physical materials can be used by anyone who visits. Guests are welcome during any of the library's open hours, with the exception that a current UMKC ID is required to enter the building after 11 pm. Community members can get a 2-hour guest log on to a library computer, which provides guest access to many of our electronic subscription resources. Individuals who join the Guest Borrower Program may borrow a limited number of items.

No, UMKC Libraries doesn’t manage the Miller Nichols Learning Center (MNLC), even though it is connected to the main Miller Nichols Library building. We are not in charge of the classrooms, lecture halls, or the tabling space in the MNLC foyer. However, library staff are in charge of clearing out and locking the MNLC space at night when the library closes, and opening the MNLC exterior doors in the morning when the library opens.
Are you struggling to choose a research topic? Here are some things to consider:

The UMKC Libraries don't have current or online access to the Kansas City Star. We do collect the Kansas City Star but it is on microfilm. See the dates for microfilm for recent issues plus historical access back to 1885. For online access to the Kansas City Star, sign up for free for a local public library card.
