The Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) is a regional resource-sharing organization established in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to expand and enhance the information resources available to their students and faculty.

AU patrons can place requests for Consortium Loan Service (CLS) materials, which will come from one of the nine schools that make up the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC), including:

  • American University (AU)
  • Catholic University (CU)
  • Gallaudet University (GA)
  • George Mason University (GM)
  • George Washington University (GW)
  • Georgetown University (GT)
  • Howard University (HU)
  • Marymount University (MU)
  • University of the District of Columbia (DC)

Requests can be made by clicking on the REQUEST button located on the upper right corner of the full item record in the library catalog, and then you're able to track your requests by visiting your My Library Account.
