Attention MOBIUS Borrowers: Changes to MOBIUS During April and May

MOBIUS will transition to a new library catalog and resource sharing system in April and May of this year. The migration will begin on April 18th with a 5-week freeze on requesting materials from MOBIUS libraries. To facilitate a smooth transition to the new system, due dates for all MOBIUS materials will be adjusted to May 17th.

MOBIUS Timeline

  • April 17: The last day to request items through MOBIUS
  • April 18: Freeze on requesting from MOBIUS
  • May 17: All MOBIUS item are due
  • May 22: Estimated date that MOBIUS will resume borrowing and lending

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at ask@missouri.libanswers.com if you have questions. We will explore options to ensure you have the materials you need during this transition, or you may request items directly through ILL@MU now.

Checkout practices will remain normal for all MU Libraries, UM system libraries (UMKC, UMSL and Missouri S&T) and University of Missouri Libraries Depositories (UMLD) borrowing; no disruption will occur between MU/UM/UMLD libraries during the MOBIUS transition.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to resuming MOBIUS borrowing and lending at the end of May. Thank you for your cooperation.

Vice Provost for Libraries and University Librarian to Retire

Deb Ward, Vice Provost and University Librarian

Deb Ward has served for more than 25 years in a variety of roles

University of Missouri Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Latha Ramchand announced today that Deb Ward, the vice provost for MU Libraries and University librarian, will retire on May 31, 2024. Ward’s more than 25-year career has spanned key roles, culminating in her appointment as interim and then permanent vice provost for MU Libraries and University librarian.

Before accepting the position of vice provost, Ward served as the director of the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library. During her tenure, Ward played a pivotal role in advancing the integration of electronic information delivery into health care, introducing clinical librarian services, and promoting the use of evidence-based information in healthcare delivery.

As the leader of MU Libraries, Ward navigated challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring uninterrupted library services while implementing safety protocols and managing a shutdown. Additionally, Ward spearheaded strategic space planning initiatives for Ellis Library, serving as the project director for an NEH challenge grant aimed at upgrading the West Stacks for Ellis Library to create a permanent location for distinctive collections.

One of Ward’s enduring legacies is her unwavering commitment to tailoring library services to meet the evolving needs of students and faculty throughout her years at MU.

“It has been an honor to serve the MU community and contribute to the growth and evolution of our libraries,” Ward said. “I am grateful for the opportunities and support I’ve received throughout my career. As I step into retirement, I look forward to witnessing the continued success and innovation of MU Libraries under new leadership.”

The university will commence a national search for a new vice provost for Libraries, with the desired start date of June 1, 2024. A number of constituent groups will be contacted for input and feedback on potential search committee members.
