Tracking Materials
Iowa libraries do not need to report their traditional statistical reporting numbers to MOBIUS. The courier uses a barcode scanning and tracking system called Datatrac. Datatrac is completely automated, and does not require any interaction on your part. This tool is provided for you to use at your convenience, and will allow you to check the status of your materials and your route at any time. If you need help logging in contact the Help Desk using the information below.
