MU Staff: Research on the Road
MU faculty, students and staff who are in good standing (no billed books or unpaid fines or blocks on their circulation record) may go to any other MERLIN / MOBIUS library and present their MU ID card and borrow books held in those libraries, if they are “Available” in the MERLIN / MOBIUS catalog.
Recalling a Book that is Checked Out
- Go to the Ellis Library Circulation Desk or at any branch library circulation desk with your MU ID card.
- Have the author, title and call number of the item ready to give to staff at the Circulation Desk.
- We will recall an item if there are no available copies in any other MERLIN/MOBIUS Library.
- If there is an available copy at any other MERLIN/MOBIUS library, that copy will be requested rather than recalling one that is already checked out to a patron.
