Borrowing & Interlibrary Loan for Faculty

At the Vincent C. Immel Law Library there are four methods to request material from another library. If you need assistance, please see a member of Access Services or your Library Liasion for assistance. The four methods include:

Requesting books:

You will start you search at the SLU catalog. Requests can be made via the SLU catalog using your banner ID number and your PIN number. You will need to create a pin number by clicking on “Forgot Your PIN”

  • Books from Pius, the Medical Center, and the Locust Street Facility can all be requested via the SLU catalog.

  • There is no limit to the number of SLU items you can have on your account.

If the item you are searching for is not in the SLU catalog, click on the MOBIUS link on the right side of the page. If you find the item you need, follow these steps to request:

  • Click on the Request button

  • Choose MOBIUS - Saint Louis University as your cluster

  • Enter in your Banner ID number with three zeros in front

    • e.g. 000123456

  • Choose your pickup location (SLU- Law Library)

  • Click Submit

If your item is not available in MOBIUS, click the Prospector box at the top of the screen and your search will be repeated again in the Prospector catalog. If you find the item you are looking for, follow these next steps to request

  • Click on the Request It button

  • Choose MO-Saint Louis University

  • Enter in your Banner ID number with three zeros in front

    • e.g. 000123456

  • Choose your pickup location (SLU- Law Library)

  • Click Submit

You can only have 20 MOBIUS or Prospector items on your account at one time. Don’t use a MOBIUS or Prospector request on a SLU item.

Once your item has arrived, you will have seven days to pick it up if it is a SLU catalog request and 10 days if it is a MOBIUS or Prospector request.

Please be sure to leave all bands on the material as well as keep any paperwork that comes with the material. This paperwork has information that is essential in returning the material to the home library and may include any information about the condition in which the item was received.

Requesting articles:

Article requests are items we wish to have sent to us that do not need to be returned to the lending library. These include:

  • Journal articles

  • Chapter requests

  • Statue Requests

First, check to see if the book or journal you need is available at the law library or electronically through the SLU catalog.  If unavailable, and you have complete citation information, login to ILLiad and submit an article request. For more information see our Interlibrary Loan page.
