There are a few things you can do. First, you can see if there are any other Merlin libraries that have a copy and request it.  If not, then check MOBIUS libraries to see if there are any copies available. To do this, go to the MU Journalism Library website, click on Classic Catalog (MERLIN) and you will find (MOBIUS) on the right side of the website. This will take you to the MOBIUS page. Here you can search for author, title, etc. MOBIUS libraries have a large selection, so you will most likely be able to find and request the book through MOBIUS.

 If MOBIUS does not have a copy, you can request one from Interlibrary Loan . Whereas MOBIUS is only a system of Missouri libraries, ILL is an international system of libraries, so you should be able to find a copy using this method.  To do this, go to the Journalism Library main page. In the “I need to…” box in the far left corner the link to request an interlibrary loan item is listed as “Request an item (ILL@MU).  You will need to log in with your pawprint and password. After that simply fill out all the vital information in the request form and send it off. You will get an email when it is ready for pickup at the campus library of your choice.

 If you have a library card from Daniel Boone Regional Library in Columbia you can also see if they have a copy by searching their website.
