About the library

The J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library is one of several libraries which serve the University of Missouri. The library occupies a building in the northwestern part of the Health Sciences Center, and moved to this location in 1985. The library was named for Dr. J. Otto Lottes, an orthopedic surgeon from St. Louis and an alumnus of the University of Missouri.

This facility is available to the entire University of Missouri community, but its primary users are faculty, students, and staff of the School of Medicine, Sinclair School of Nursing, School of Health Professions, Health Management & Informatics, and MU Health Care.
