MOBIUS is the combined online catalog of 60+ libraries in Missouri, listing all of their books and materials. UMKC library users can borrow physical materials from MOBIUS libraries; you can not borrow eBooks. You can request items by selecting MOBUIS from the A-Z list of UMKC Libraries Databases, or by using the link in the library catalog and that says Search MOBIUS. Select Miller Nichols or UMKC Health Sciences Library as your pick up location.  

Requesting materials in the MOBIUS catalog will be unavailable April 18-May 22 while the MOBIUS library consortium transitions to a new platform. Request items using interlibrary loan during the disruption.
