How to Request Items

If you need books or articles that Spiva Library does not have, we can request it from another library using a service called InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

The service is only available to all MSSU students, faculty, alumni, staff and community card holders.

You can make a direct ILL request through SWAN and/or MOBIUS websites if you find the item there.  When you seach in SWAN, please make sure you choose "View Entire Collection" in the school drop-down list.  Learn how to request items from MOBIUS in here.  

The lending library will determine the due date. Although library users can request a renewal, it is the lending library’s decision to grant or deny a renewal request.  Articles are photocopies without due dates and users may keep them. 

You can also use the links below to submit an online request. Paper forms are also available at the Main Circulation and Reference Desks (3rd floor), or at the first floor circulation desk.
