Terrace Repair

Please excuse the noise and the dust. Our terrace is being replaced and there will be a few days filled with construction noise. We appreciate your patience as we work to have our terrace repaired as quickly as possible. In the mean time, we do have ear plugs available at the Info Desk to help block out the noise.

Library service outage - 5pm March 9 to 5am March 10

Due to an electrical outage at King Library in Oxford, all library servers will be unavailable from 5pm on Wednesday, March 9 through 5am on Thursday, March 10. This will impact your use of the MU library catalog, and your access to all library databases through our Miami subscriptions.

However, you may still search and order materials from the OhioLINK Central Catalog or search databases available through OhioLINK (using your Miami UniqueID and password to login).

We look forward to serving your information needs more fully following the outage. Thank you for your patience!
