What graduate students should know about the library

How and when to use Interlibrary Loan

Journal Article
If you need an article that is not available in the Library either online or in paper,
request a copy through Interlibrary Loan. There is no charge for this service.
The link to Interlibrary Loan can be reached from the library home page,
under QUICK LINKS /  ILL@MU FORM or you can bookmark this link.

Book, Dissertation, or Book Chapter
If the library does not own a book, check availability at another Missouri library (Mobius catalog).
If the book is available, request it using the REQUEST link. Books usually come in 2 to 3 working days.
(There is no charge for this service). See the video instructions
If the book is not available from a Mobius Library, request it from ILL@MU.

BIG ANNOYANCE
When you look for a book in Mobius, you will often find that an electronic copy is available at
another library. Unfortunately, YOU CANNOT ACCESS the electronic copy.  Publishers restrict
the usage of electronic books to the library which has purchased them. 
If this happens, use ILL@MU to request a copy.
