Interlibrary Loan Request for Books

If you need a book which Spiva Library does not own, we can request a copy from another library using a service called InterLibrary Loan.

Before you place a request for a book, be sure to check MOBIUS. Books available through MOBIUS libraries can be requested by MSSU students, faculty and staff from the MOBIUS page.

This service is available to all MSSU students, faculty, alumni, staff and community card holders.
