TAE Is Now Connected with MOBIUS

Trans-Amigos Express is pleased to announce a new connection to MOBIUS, a consortium of nearly 70 participating libraries across Missouri. Amigos will host a webinar on May 6 explaining in detail how the connection will work. You can register for this free session here.

MOBIUS uses pre-made labels provided by their courier service. Their label maker can be found on their website.

Several members of MOBIUS are also members of MALA. You can decide which connection you would like to use to send to these libraries; just use the label from the connection you are sending it through. You will notice there are similarly named libraries throughout TAE, MALA, KLE, and MOBIUS. Remember to be attentive to the details of the recipient library. MOBIUS, KLE, and MALA all include physical addresses on their labels, which can help ensure you are sending to the correct library.

MOBIUS bag imageMOBIUS bags are black, printed with "MOBIUS" on the front. Please see the photo at right for reference.

These bags are NOT interchangeable with the MALA bags. Items going to and from a MOBIUS library should be sent in either a black MOBIUS bag or a purple TAE/TExpress bag. Please remember, you can use the purple TAE/TExpress bags to send to any of our connecting partners.

We are working on creating an OCLC lending group similar to the MAGO lending group used for our connection to MALA. Please watch the courier listserv for further announcements about this connection and upcoming webinar.
