    • In May of 2018, Kansas State University’s Hale Library suffered substantial smoke and water damage due to an accidental roof fire. This unforeseen event caused the library to find creative ways to provide services to their students and meet their needs. Now, imagine the doors to one of the UMKC libraries are barred and a sign states “due to circumstances beyond our control access to the library has been suspended for the rest of year.” Consider the many ways you use the UMKC libraries, and write on the impact of such a notice, on a personal and institutional level.
