Information about general library policies for Fontbonne staff.

Circulation Policies for Faculty & Staff

All library materials, including MOBIUS and Interlibrary Loan items, can be checked out for four weeks with two four-week renewals. 

Library materials can be renewed online by clicking here to log into your library account.

If someone else is using a book you need, we'll hold it at the front desk when it is returned and notify you that it is available. If a book is checked out when it is needed or a class, we can contact the person who has the book and request its immediate return. Please contact us for details about either of these services.

Borrowing from other Libraries

MOBIUS is a consortium of libraries with more than seventy member libraries in Missouri and surrounding states.

Fontbonne University has access to millions of items through the combined holdings of these libraries. If books are not available at Fontbonne University but are available in the Bridges or MOBIUS system, you may request them through the catalog and pick them up within 3-5 business days at the front desk. You may also visit MOBIUS member libraries and check out items on-site using your Fontbonne University ID.

To request books, select your cluster (Bridges) and enter your username (your last name) and password (your Fontbonne University ID number followed by a capital F). MOBIUS books are checked out for 4 weeks with 2 renewals.

Information Literacy Instruction

Librarians provide information literacy instruction for all disciplines across the university. All sessions are customized to the course and should be aligned with an assignment, either existing or co-created with the librarian. 

  • A meeting with the librarian is required to better understand the information needs of the students and to develop a plan for the instruction session.
  • The instructor should plan to be present and participate in the instruction session.
  • At least one week's notice is requested when scheduling a session, and are given on a first-come-first-served basis. 
  • Contact Amanda Albert for all information literacy sessions or Rebecca van Kniest for sessions that involve special collections, the University Archives, or the Center for Bosnian Studies.
