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" link to get materials from other libraries. Books generally take between 2 and 5 business days to arrive when coming from another Missouri library. You will receive an email when they are available to check out at the library.
Use these databases to find articles from journals not included in Summon, as well as other types of publications. If the full text of an article is not provided within the database, click on the "Get It" button to see if the article is available electronically elsewhere in our collection. Articles that are not available online can be requested through interlibrary loan; copies will be delivered to you by email.
When you find a journal article or book that you think is a good source for your research, look at the works cited to see if you can identify other potentially useful sources. Then search the library's collection to see if they are available here.
