MOBIUS is a combined catalog of most academic libraries in the state of Missouri.

  • Please refer to the how to request books from MERLIN Libraries if you have not yet done so.
  • If the book you need is not held by any of the MERLIN Libraries or all of the copies are checked out, please select the MOBIUS Catalog button at the top of the page and re-create your search. (Alternate MOBIUS link)
  • If a copy is available in a MOBIUS Library:
    • Choose mobiusrequestitem and follow the instructions on the screens.
    • Choose a PICK-UP LOCATION
    • Select any MOBIUS Library on the pull down menu as a PICKUP LOCATION.
    • If you are a distance learning student, a faculty or staff member working at an extension site, or away from your home library for an extended period, choose the nearest MOBIUS Library on the pull down menu as the PICKUP LOCATION. The books you request will be sent to that library.
