MOBIUS is a consortium of libraries in Missouri, United States.

Formation[edit]

MOBIUS was originally established in 1998 by 50 libraries representing Missouri colleges and universities. The University of Missouri acted as the host institution for the new organization. The name was originally an acronym for Missouri Bibliographic Information User System,[1] although the organization no longer uses it as such. In 2010 MOBIUS left the University of Missouri and became a Missouri not-for-profit corporation.

Membership[edit]

As of 2012 it includes 59 academic libraries, 5 public libraries, 1 special library, and the Missouri State Library serving a total of 132 physical branches. The MOBIUS Union Catalog includes over 23 million items.[2]
