Whether you are a student at one of our campuses or a distance/online learner we have a variety of services to make your experience easier.
Ask A Librarian
Get expert assistance from one of the reference librarians. This service is available whenever a reference librarian is on duty.
These brief videos provide instructions on the use of some of our most popular databases.
If you want to borrow a book that MU Libraries do not own, borrow from this group. Most items ship within 3-5 business days and can be borrowed for 84 days (12 weeks) but cannot be renewed (note: library accounts expire at the end of each semester, so an EZ Borrow item borrowed later in the semester can only be checked out until this expiration date).
Check this site for answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.

IDS/ILL (Information Delivery & Interlibrary Loan)
