When it's NOT in the Library.... 

Requesting Books

MOBIUS links 60 Missouri academic libraries so that you can search their catalogs at one time.  You can borrow books from these libraries, 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).  You can keep them for 21-days with two 21-day renewals if not needed elsewhere.  You can renew them online through your Library account.  There is no charge for this service.  You can have out up to 20 books at out at one time through MOBIUS.  (NOTE:  You cannot order articles through MOBIUS.)

WorldCat.  When MOBIUS doesn't have what you need, you can try interlibrary loan.  WorldCat contains more than 85 million records for material in libraries in the United States and around the world.  You can order online.  Pick up and return books at the Library Service Desk (University ID required).  These items come in the mail and  therefore take longer to arrive than MOBIUS books.  Loan periods are set by the lending library.  To renew, you must contact the Interlibrary Loan Office.  There is no charge for this service.  (NOTE:  You cannot order articles through WorldCat.)
