How do I locate a book in the stacks?
What if the SLU Libraries don't have the book you need or if our copy is not available?
If the SLU Libraries don't have a book that you need, or our copy is checked out, you can request the book from MOBIUS, our library network.
Click on the Search the MOBIUS catalog link on libraries.slu.edu
When you locate the book in MOBIUS, click the REQUEST THIS ITEM link and follow the instructions. Your book will be delivered in a few days. You will get an email to your SLU account when your book arrives. Pickup the book at the Pius circulation desk (East entrance). It usually takes about 3 working days.
If the book is not available in MOBIUS, use ILLiad Interlibrary Loan to request the book.
Pius Library uses the Library of Congress (LOC) call number system.The call number describes what the book is about and provides a way to organize the books in the library. You can use the links below to identify call numbers for browsing.
