To find print and online books on a topic, search the MERLIN library catalog. Remember to put multiple word phrases in quotation marks (for example, "civil war") to search the words together in the catalog.
Find even more books using the MOBIUS catalog, which searches more than 60 libraries in the state of Missouri. You can go directly to the MOBIUS catalog to search, or if you are searching in MERLIN, you can simply switch to MOBIUS by clicking the "Search MOBIUS" button.
Use the "Request" option to get materials from other libraries. Books generally take between 2 and 5 business days to arrive. You will receive an email when they are available to check out.
Use interlibrary loan to request books (and other materials, including journal articles) from libraries outside the state of Missouri. You will have to set up an account and select a username and password to make requests. On average, it takes a week to receive materials through interlibrary loan.
