Requesting item via MERLIN using the Web Catalog 

This section is a tutorial that shows the process step-by-step. To access the actual pages please go to this site:

http://campus.mst.edu/library/merlin.html

Please note the following links connect to screenshots that show you how things appear on the screen; they are static images and cannot take any input.

Your search automatically begins in the Missouri S&T library catalog. You can select the entire MERLIN system by selecting "Change MERLIN Catalog Site" and then "Search All MERLIN Library Collections."

When you find a book located at the MERLIN library that you want to request, click on the "Request This Item" link near the top of the page. Please note you cannot request books which are available at Missouri S&T, only those from other campuses.

Enter your name, university I.D. number and PIN number.
If you do not have a current PIN number, make one up using 3 - 8 numbers or letters.

Select a pickup location. To receive the book in Rolla, choose "Missouri S&T Library Circulation Desk."

Click on "Submit Above Information" on the bottom.

If you do not have a current PIN number the system will prompt you to reenter and verify the PIN number you chose. Please choose a PIN you can remember easily. You will use it each time you view your record or request an item.

If the request was successful, the system will acknowledge your request.

The normal turnaround time for MERLIN items is 2 - 4 days; you will receive a notice by mail or e-mail when it arrives. Items are held at the Circulation Desk for 7 days.
