This guide is designed to help staff utilize library resources and locate development opportunities. Please contact us anytime for assistance using these resources.
Logan students, faculty, and staff may borrow books from over 60 other libraries in Missouri through the MOBIUS consortium. Books may be borrowed in person with your Logan ID, or you may request the book to be sent to Logan and when you are done, simply return it back to Logan. Books typically arrive in three business days.
Search the MOBIUS catalog, find your item, click Request, choose BRIDGES as your cluster, enter your name and campus ID (your nine digit student number followed by L), and then choose your pick up location. You will be notified through Logan email when the book is ready for pick-up.
Faculty and Staff have access to all of the library's resources. Loan periods and additional details are below.

Damaged Lost Materials
Damaged or lost LRC materials should be reported promptly. Replacement charges are assessed at the current list price of the library preferred edition, as determined by the LRC, plus a $10.00/item processing fee. Upon payment, lost items will be considered the property of the borrower.
Books, journals, and media may be renewed as long as there are no “Holds/Recalls” on the materials, or the maximum number of renewals has been reached. These items may be renewed online or at the Circulation Desk.
Holds and Recalls
Holds may be placed on items that are currently checked out to another patron. This may be done online or at the Circulation Desk. If an item “on hold” becomes overdue, a “recall” notice will be sent to the delinquent patron.
Faculty Long-Term Loan Policy
When a faculty member needs a book for an extended period of time, for a course or for research, a Long-Term Loan request should be initiated. Please contact the LRC for more information on the purchasing process.
The faculty member is responsible for long-term loan materials and must return them to the library when the course or research has been completed. When a faculty member’s contract is completed/terminated, all library materials, including long-term loans, must be returned to the library.
The cost of the long-term loan materials is charged to the faculty member’s department.
Full Text / Copies
Need full text of an article? Access Logan's journals through the Journal Holdings List. We can also provide full text or copies for you at $2.50/article for those that are included in Logan's collection. If the article is outside of Logan's collection, we will order it by interlibrary loan. The standard fee for each interlibrary loan article is $2.50. If the lending library charges Logan for the article, we add that amount to the in-house $2.50 charge.
Literature Search and Citation Service
Logan Librarians will perform a literature search on your subject of interest, or provide you with a requested amount of articles on your topic (full-text fees apply). Please contact Sheryl.Walters@logan.edu, for a literature search or other reference services/instruction you require.
Faculty members are responsible for checked out materials at the end of each trimester and for completing the library's "clearance" process.
