MURA Home for the Holidays – December 11, 2020

 

We are tweaking our traditional Holiday Social this year, and invite you to join us for fun, music, trivia, and sharing of holiday traditions, old and new. Home for the Holidays means something different this year. We may not be “going” home, but as we “stay” home we will find joy and satisfaction in new ways.

Who doesn’t love giving gifts at holiday time? MURA’s tradition of a gift raffle is changing this year, and supporting the Tiger Pantry is a way we can “gift” to help our campus community. “To feed hungry Tigers in need” has been the purpose of Tiger Pantry since its inception in 2012, and is ever more important during this pandemic era. An auxiliary of the Central and Northeast Missouri Food Bank, the Pantry offers food resources and education to student, staff and faculty. Consider making a holiday donation in one of two ways:

  • Make checks payable to “University of Missouri” with “Attn: Tiger Pantry MURA/Osher Fundraiser” on the front and mail to: Tiger Pantry – 2500 MU Student Center Columbia MO 65211. If questions–tigerpantry@missouri.edu.
  • Online at: https://mizzougivedirect.missouri.edu/fund.aspx?item_id=90. Be sure to put “MURA/Osher Fundraiser” in the box labeled “Please share with us why you are giving.”

Come dressed in your holiday finest, ready to share your favorite holiday tradition (or a funny holiday story) and experience the joy and warmth of friendship in a new way.

MURA Virtual Breakfast Program: Kelli Hansen, Head of Special Collection and Rare Books – December 1, 2020

 

Virtual MURA Breakfast Program, December 1, 8:30-9:30 a.m.

Featured Speaker: Kelli Hansen, Head of Special Collections and Rare Books, MU Libraries on  “Discovering the Secrets of Special Collections.”

In a special holiday gift for all of us, Special Collections Librarian Kelli Hansen will share some of the treasures within the Library’s collection.  We will go (virtually) inside the closed stacks and appointment-only reading room, to see highlights of the collections, including materials related to the history of books and printing, authors’ manuscripts, historic maps, posters, comics, and more. Some of the treasures we will explore include a rare 16th century illuminated Processional from a Dominican Sisters convent and (in contrast) the biting editorial cartoons of Chicago Tribune cartoonist John Tinney McCutcheon which often featured politics and the press. We will also take a tour of the new Special Collections website and explore digital resources that are open and available to the world, so that you can share the secrets of Special Collections with others.  Here is the link:
