The annual report for the 2019/2020 academic year will be out soon. In the past, we typically have finished and distributed our annual report in the later summer. Because of the global pandemic in 2020, getting this annual report finished, printed, and distributed has taken longer than usual.
Despite all of the challenges caused by COVID-19 during the final five months of the previous academic year, overall it was another good year for the Missouri State University Libraries. For the first time in recent memory, the total amount of external support for the Libraries exceeded $2 million. Everyone at the Missouri State University Libraries extends a hearty and heartfelt thank-you to all of the friends and supporters of the collections, services, spaces, and professional expertise provided by the Libraries.
