Use the library catalog to see if the book is available from Webster University Library, Luhr Reading and Reference Library or any other MOBIUS library.

Step Three: Type in your last name, your id no. with the campus code of EWL, choose Webster Univ, US Sites for the Choose Pick up Location.
How do I know where the book is located and if it is Available?
If the book is available at the Webster University library in St. Louis the Location will state Webster Books  and the Status will state AVAILABLE

If the book is available from the Eden Stored or Eden Storage collection in St. Louis the Location will state either Eden Sem. Stored Books-Request Item or Eden Sem. Storage Books-Request Item and the Status will be AVAILABLE

If the book is available at another MOBIUS library (the Missouri library consortium to which Webster belongs) the Location will neither say Webster nor Eden and the Status will be AVAILABLE

How and When Will I get the book?

How:  We are going to ship each book to you from the home campus in St. Louis.  We use UPS to ship books via normal ground shipping to your address of record. UPS DOES NOT SHIP TO P.O. BOXES.   UPS picks up packages from us Monday-Friday afternoon (excluding holidays) and we include a pre-paid return shipping label as well as instructions on how to request renewals and how to return the book(s) to us. 
When:
Webster BooksWe pull books from our local collections (Webster books) every day but UPS only picks them up Monday through Friday.  Depending on your location it will take the book 3-4 days (excluding holidays and weekends) to arrive at your home address of record after we ship it. 
Eden Stored or Eden Storage Books:  We receive a delivery of books from the Eden Stored and Eden Storage Collections on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  So, for example, if you request one of these books on a Friday, we won’t be able to ship it to you until Tuesday afternoon.  Again, depending on your location, it will take the book 3-4 days (excluding holidays and weekends) to arrive at your home address of record after we ship it). 
MOBIUS Books: It takes an average of 4-5 business days (excluding holidays and weekends) for a MOBIUS book to arrive at the Webster University Library in St. Louis.  Then, depending on your location, it will take an additional 3-4 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) for the book to arrive at your home address of record after we ship it.   
None of the Above : I can’t find the book in your library or any other MOBIUS library?

  1. Create or Log into your Clioweb Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery account.
  2. Click the "Request a Book" button on the toolbar on the left side of the screen and enter as much information into the form as possible.

If we find a lending library it takes an average of 10 working days (excluding weekends and US holidays) for the book to arrive at Webster University Library. Lending libraries send the book to us NOT you.

When the book arrives we will ship the book to you at the address you used when creating your Clioweb Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery account. You should expect it to take up to 4 business days (excluding weekends and US holidays) for the book to arrive. We use UPS and will ship the book to you in a box which will include a pre-paid return label along with instructions on how you may renew and return the book to us.
The lending library also establishes the due date so the circulation period will vary from as little as a few days to as much as two to three weeks.

If we are unable to fill your request we will notify you via the e-mail you used to create your Clioweb Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery account. You may also log into your Clioweb Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery account at any time in order to check on the status of your request(s).

If you have any questions about the status of your requst please contact us at either 314-246-6952 or docdel@webster.edu
