MOBIUS requesting is available again!

MOBIUS is a Missouri-based partner system of libraries which allows patrons of individual institutions to borrow directly from other partner libraries. State employees have access to millions of items in the MOBIUS catalog, including books and other materials that cover the entire range of state agency research needs. To learn more about requesting from MOBIUS libraries, visit our Find & Renew Books page.

All you need to request an item from MOBIUS is a Missouri State Library card. Don’t have a library card? Fill out our online application.

Note: Some MOBIUS partner libraries remain closed, and their materials will not be available to borrow. Delays may also occur due to the quarantine of materials.
