      • Write down the Call Number and Location and go find it.

    • If you do not find what you need, expand your search to MOIBUS by clicking on   link.

      • If you find the item in MOBIUS and it is requestable, click Request Icon Request link, enter your name, your Banner ID (Example:  000123456), the cluster from which you want to pick up the item and the library where you want the book sent for pickup.
    • If MOBIUS does not have what you need, place an Interlibrary Loan for the book.

Getting Your Hands on Articles

  • For a "known" article, begin by searching the SLU Library Catalog or SLU E-Journal Portal by Title of Journal.
      • Browse the resulting list of issues for the journal to find the article OR search within the specific journal, if that option is available.
      • If the journal is only in print and SLU owns, write down the call number, and go to the shelf to retrieve the needed volume.
  • For articles on a topic, begin by searching a database such as Academic Search Premier, Nexis Uni, or a subject database such as America : History & Life, Historical Abstracts, Humanities International Complete.
    • Use Find It @ SLU button or link from within databases to get to Article Linker to help locate article.
