Mizzou Seeking Donations To Recover From Mold Outbreak

As many of you have heard the University of Missouri has suffered a large mold outbreak in their offsite facility. They have set up a fundraising campaign to help raise the necessary money to treat or replace the affected collections.

“In October 2013, mold was discovered growing on books and bound journal volumes throughout the University of Missouri System’s secondary offsite facility, UMLD2. This facility holds approximately 600,000 volumes that belong to the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. To assist with MU Libraries’ response to the mold bloom, we have established this fund. Your gift will be used to treat, relocate and in some cases, replace items impacted by mold. Our goal is to ensure that MU Libraries’ ability to serve the needs of our users is not compromised by this sad event. A gift of any amount is greatly appreciated!”

To read more see Missouri’s donation page. The University has also put up an FAQ page with more information. Please share broadly on all your social media platforms.
