Tour Scheduling & Procedures

Please Note: Weekend tours may not be available during semester breaks. Please check our hours page or phone 314-516-7248 to verify tour availability prior to your visit.

Docent-led Tours 

Get more out of your visit to the Mercantile Library with a free, docent-led tour! Tours are available by reservation-only at this time, and offered during open library hours. To schedule a docent-led tour, please call 314-516-7248 or email mercantilelibrary@umsl.edu.

Faculty-led Visits: 

(Dependent on UMSL Academic Calendar)
While we welcome and encourage class visits, a docent presentation can greatly enhance the professor’s learning objectives. Please consider including a docent introduction to your topic as a lead-in to your learning project for that visit. Faculty-led class visits are very welcome but must be scheduled so as to avoid conflicts with other class groups or other scheduled group tours. Email or phone 314-516-7248 to request a docent or to register your class visit.
