Items From Other Libraries
Can’t find what you’re looking for in the Kent Library catalog? Try using one of these services.

Mobius
This should be the first place you check when you can’t find an item in our catalog. Through Mobius, you have access to over 27 million items from libraries throughout Missouri. Items will usually arrive in 3-5 business days. This service is free of charge to Southeast Missouri State University patrons.

Remember, when requesting an item that your “cluster” is Galahad.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
If you can’t find what you’re looking for in either our catalog or the Mobius catalog, try putting in an Interlibrary Loan request using ILLiad. This service gives you access to millions of items from all over the world. You can request books, as well as digital copies of journal articles. First-time users will need to sign up for an account, but should note that this service is free of charge to Southeast Missouri State University patrons.

WorldCat
For the particularly hard-to-find title, you can also try searching WorldCat, the world’s largest library catalog. WorldCat provides access to over 2 billion items from libraries across the globe.

MOBIUS and Interlibrary loan items will be kept on the hold shelf for two weeks after being received. If they are not picked up within two weeks, they will be returned to the lending library.
