Other MOBIUS Benefits

  • You can physically go to any MOBIUS Library and use the facility as well as checkout materials directly from there.  You will need to bring your Stephens ID.  For example, you can use the Ellis Library at the University of Missouri.
  • You can return MOBIUS items to any MOBIUS Library.  For example, you can return books you checked out from the University of Missouri to the Stephens Library.  We will make sure they get checked in and returned to Mizzou.
