I loooove the bookmark Cafe’! It actually has decent coffee! If there are any thoughts of expanding it, I strongly support these. I would also be exultant if they had a microwave. Thanks
We are glad you are enjoying the Bookmark Cafe coffee. We will pass along the idea about microwaves to Campus Dining Services.

The Journalism Library is open until midnight on weekdays, yet all doors into the Reynolds Journalism Institute except one are locked before 9 p.m. And which door will be unlocked is not consistent. It doesn’t make sense for the doors to be locked when the library is open (especially considering the Futures Lab, which isn’t part of the Libraries is “open” 24/7.) I do not feel safe walking all around the building at night, trying to guess at which door will be unlocked, when I could very easily walk in the double doors on 9th Street if they were unlocked. This is especially true given the muggings that have happened in that area in the last few months (2 on the quad, 1 behind the Professional Building by Hitt. St. Garage.)
Due to the proximity of the journalism complex to The District, bars and restaurants, all doors, except for the RJI double door entrance from the quad are locked after 8:00PM during weeknights. That door is open during library hours. Here is a link to a map of RJI showing which door is open http://mulibraries.missouri.edu/journalism/journalism_pdfs/Library1st.pdf
All doors in the journalism complex would be locked after 8:00PM with only card access if the library was not in the complex. It is access to the library that necessitated that one entrance be accessible during library hours.
We appreciate your safety concerns and hope that this information helps.

I don’t know if this is under Ellis library jurisdiction, but could you discuss with the Ellis Cafe the possibility of recycling the “java coats” that go around hot drinks? This would be an easy recycling opportunity and personally I would not mind reusing them.
The Bookmark Cafe is run by Campus Dining Services. We will check with them about this possibility. I hope you noticed that Ellis Library has recently placed container recycling bins throughout the Library including in the Bookmark Cafe.
