Placing MOBIUS Book Requests

Contents




Requesting Books through SWAN

If AGTS students, faculty, or staff members wish to borrow any circulating books owned by other SWAN libraries, they may place a request for the book through the SWAN online catalog. (A listing of SWAN libraries can be found in this catalog.)

The procedure is as follows:

  1. From the open bibliographic record of the desired book, click on the "Request" option at the top of the screen.

  2. A Request page will open. Enter in the following information in the spaces provided:

    1. Name

    2. Campus ID. In order to access your Patron Record, you will need to enter in your unique library ID. This ID is your Evangel student number (the number that appears in your student card barcode), followed by the letters "EU" (all caps). Note: The library staff will not be creating new IDs for AGTS students who had IDs created prior to the consolidation. If you would prefer to have your ID updated or have forgotten your "AGTS" ID, please contact the library's Circulation Desk.

    3. Personal PIN. If you have not already created a PIN, you can do so by entering in a sequence of letters/numbers and clicking on "Submit." You will be responsible for creating and remembering your own PIN. If you forget your PIN, you may contact the library's Circulation Desk and they can delete your old PIN, enabling you to create a new one.

    4. Select a "Pickup Location." A drop-down list is provided. You will need to select "Assemblies of God Theological Seminary," the first option provided.

    5. Enter a "Cancel if not Filled By" date.

    6. Click "Submit."

Once a request is filled by a SWAN library, the book will be shipped to the AGTS library. Once the book arrives at AGTS, it will be placed on the hold shelf and a pickup notice will be emailed or mailed to the patron. It will be the responsibility of the patron to pick up the book from the Circulation Desk.

Note: AGTS students may also check out books directly from the circulation desk of SWAN libraries when visiting those libraries. However, it is recommended that patrons use the online catalog to request books as much as is reasonably possible. The typical delivery time should be one to two days.

For more information about SWAN, including a list of SWAN libraries, please consult the MOBIUS Introduction page.

Requesting Books through
the MOBIUS Catalog

If AGTS students, faculty, or staff members wish to borrow any books that are owned by MOBIUS libraries that are outside of the SWAN cluster, they may place a request for the books through the MOBIUS catalog.

The procedure is as follows:

  1. From the open bibliographic record of the desired book, click on the "Request This Item" option at the top of the screen.

  2. You will be prompted to select your cluster. Be sure to select "SWAN."

  3. A Request page will open. Enter in the following information in the spaces provided:

    1. Name

    2. Campus ID. In order to access your Patron Record, you will need to enter in your unique library ID. This ID is your Evangel student number (the number that appears in your student card barcode), followed by the letters "EU" (all caps). Note: The library staff will not be creating new IDs for AGTS students who had IDs created prior to the consolidation. If you would prefer to have your ID updated or have forgotten your "AGTS" ID, please contact the library's Circulation Desk.

    3. Select Your Pickup Cluster. Again, you will want to select "SWAN" from the dropdown list.

    4. Select a "Pickup Location." A drop-down list is provided. You will need to select "Assemblies of God Theological Seminary," the first option provided.

    5. Click "Submit."

Once a request is filled by a MOBIUS library, the book will be shipped to the AGTS library. Once the book arrives at AGTS, it will be placed on the hold shelf and a pickup notice will be emailed or mailed to the patron. It will be the responsibility of the patron to pick up the book from the Circulation Desk.

Note: AGTS students may also check out books directly from the circulation desk of MOBIUS libraries when visiting those libraries. If you attempt this in a MOBIUS library that is not part of the SWAN cluster you will need to be able to provide the library's circulation staff with your ID number. It is recommended that patrons use the online catalog to request books as much as is reasonably possible.

Note: AGTS distance students who live in Missouri and who may find it more convenient to visit another MOBIUS library may select that alternate library as a pickup location when requesting books through the Union Catalog. In such instances, you will receive a Pick-Up notice from the library you have selected and you will have to pick up the item at that location.

For more information about MOBIUS please consult the MOBIUS Introduction page.
