Borrowing Information

MOBIUS links 60 Missouri academic libraries so that you can search their catalogs at one time and borrow books from these libraries by requesting them online.  A delivery service brings what you've ordered generally within 3-4  working days.  You will be notified by Truman e-mail when the books arrive.  Pick up and return books at the Library Service Desk (University ID required).  There is no charge for this service. (NOTE:  You cannot order articles or videos through MOBIUS.) Material may be requested directly from the LANCE and MOBIUS catalogs.
