Temporary Disruption to MOBIUS Service

There will be a temporary suspension of services on the MOBIUS online library catalog, which allows users to request items from Missouri libraries outside Washington University. This is due to an upcoming migration of MOBIUS to a new operating and software system. MOBIUS borrowing and lending services on campus will halt on April 18, 2024, and the service is slated to be restored in midsummer.
