*MOBIUS is the Missouri Bibliographic Information User System. It is a library consortium of academic and some public library institutions throughout the state of Missouri . Holdings of all member institutions can be viewed in one catalog. Patrons are able to initiate borrowing requests directly through the system without the mediation of library staff.  

ILLiad is the library's automated interlibrary loan system. Use ILLiad to request all books not available through MOBIUS and all photocopies (journal articles & book chapters).
