Finding Books

To find books, you have several options beyond the "Books & Media tab found on the MU Libraries homepage:

  • MERLIN Catalog
    Use the MERLIN Catalog to find books, journals and other materials at MU and the other campuses of the University of Missouri.  If we don't have the book here in Columbia, or if our copy is checked out, you can request it from another UM library by searching "All Merlin."  Books typically arrive at MU within 2-3 working days.
  • MOBIUS Catalog
    If the book you need is not available through MERLIN, you can request it from MOBIUS - the statewide network of Missouri college and university libraries.  Books requested from other MOBIUS Librariesusually arrive at MU in 2-3 working days.
  • InterLibrary Loan
    If the book you need is not available through MERLIN or MOBIUS, you can request it through ILL (InterLibrary Loan) or WorldCat, an international catalog.
  • WorldCat

Google Books

Why use Google Books?

Google Books searches the full-text of books.  It lets you search within the text of books--you can see the table of contents, index or a portion of the contents of the book.  You can then locate the book in a nearby library.
