Books

How do I find a book?

  What is MERLIN?

  • It's the library's catalog. It contains records of books and other materials held at the Columbia, Kansas City, Rolla and St. Louis campuses of the University of Missouri.

  Does the MU libraries have e-books?

Interlibrary Loan

  What if the book I need is located at another University of Missouri campus? 

  What if I really need a book and it’s not in MERLIN?

  • MOBIUS  - a catalog of the collections from most college and university libraries in the state of Missouri.
