Distance Learners

Marymount University provides library resources for students enrolled in MU online classes, the M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision programHybrid Online R.N.- to - B.S.N. program, Educational Partnerships classes, study abroad classes, and programs at the Reston Center. Students can borrow materials from the Marymount collection and other WRLC member libraries, as well as from other libraries throughout the United States.

Locating Materials

  • Search the shared online WRLC Catalog to identify print and electronic books,  book chapters, journal titles, videos, and additional materials owned by MU and other WRLC  libraries.
  • Use library databases from on or off campus to find citations and full-text articles, images, streaming video, and more, in online periodicals and reference sources.
  • Full-text access to articles in electronic journals is available in most of our database subscriptions. Search MU e-Journals to determine if a periodical is available in full text.

Requesting materials

  • Materials can be requested free of charge through the Consortium Loan Service (CLS) or through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
  • Use CLS to request materials listed in the WRLC catalog. Select “Marymount-Distance Education” from the Library for Pickup drop-down menu. In the comments section of the CLS form, list your course number and address; materials will be mailed to your primary address.
  • Use Interlibrary Loan to request materials that are not available from either Marymount or the other WRLC libraries. Log in to MyLibrary to access the interactive ILL form. Be sure to select “Distance Education” from the delivery options in the personal information section to have the materials mailed to you.
