Library Catalogs

  • Discover@MU functions as our library catalog, listing our inventory of print and online books, as well as other materials. Search by author, title, subject, keyword and then refine your results by using the limiters in the left sidebar. By default, the system searches for books at all four UM campuses. Click the request button next to an item from another campus to request that it be sent here, or to request that we pull materials from our collection for you to pick up.
  • In the right sidebar you'll find links to MOBIUS (many Missouri libraries). You can also request materials be sent to Ellis from a Mobius library using this.
  • You can also use InterLibrary Loans to request books from other Libraries. 
  • To find a book in the Library stacks, note the location and the call number, which guide you to the book.
  • Don't hesitate to ask for help! This can be confusing.
