Tools for Finding Books

Library Catalog: Use the Library Catalog to find books at MU.  If we don't have the book here at MU or if our copy is checked out, you can request it through the MOBIUS Catalog.

MOBIUS Catalog: This catalog includes materiails from all academic libraries in the state of Missouri.

Discover@MU: is a simple and fast search engine like Google that helps you find books, scholarly journals, videos, etc.

ILL (Interlibrary Loan): If materials you need are not available through the MERLIN or MOBIUS catalogs, you can request them via ILL for free.

Searching the Catalog

Why Use Google Books?

Google Books searches within the text of books, and allows you to preview books online.  Google Books frequently provides access to the table of contents, index, and parts of chapters or selected pages.
