Library Services & Resources for Distance Students

An introduction to Library resources and services specific to Distance Education students.

Already have your Lion Card? That's your Library Card!

Your Lion Card is your passport to checking out library books at the George A. Spiva Library as well as for checking out books at ANY participating MOBIUS library. If you don't have your Lion Card yet, you can get one on campus at the Lion Card Office.

If you can't make it to the MSSU Lion Card Office, check with the library you want to use. As long as you have a current photo ID & know your Missouri Southern S#, many will let you check out books as a Missouri Southern student.
