Accessing Library Resources
|ALERT: The libraries are now open ONLY to Marymount University patrons, with Marymount ID access. MU patrons may now request materials owned by Marymount library and some WRLC libraries for contactless pickup. Services are also being provided virtually. Click here for more information on related policy and procedure changes.
Access MyLibrary resources from your home or office. Need a video for your class? Search for and request DVDs from Marymount and other WRLC Libraries or find streaming media for classroom use. Search Journal Finder and library databases for full-text articles and a variety of electronic resources. Use LinkMaker to post articles on your Canvas site.
To request books, chapters, journal articles, and other materials through the Consortium Loan Service (CLS) use the MULibrary Search. To obtain items that are not available from Marymount or other Consortium libraries through Interlibrary Loan, complete the interactive ILL form.
Find out how to place material on reserve for your courses. Submit the Reserve Request Form (online) or print the Reserve Request Form (PDF). If you plan to put student papers or projects on reserve, please complete the Student Coursework Consent Form.
Faculty Retrieval Service
Request items held at the Marymount library through the MULibrary Search and pick them up at the Circulation Desk. When selecting a book or video, choose Reinsch Library from the “Pickup at Institution” pull-down menu on the request page. In approximately three to four hours, you will receive an email letting you know that the item is available.
- If anything is unavailable (missing, checked out), the request will be automatically forwarded to a different university. We will not place a hold on the MU item.
- Faculty, staff and students may request library materials from the main campus to be delivered to the Ballston Center. To do so, select Balllston Coakley Library Extension from the “Pickup location at home institution” pull-down menu on the request page, and it will generally arrive the following day.
Schedule a Library Instruction class to help your students develop information literacy skills and search strategies and use research tools. Contact your library liaison to request library instruction sessions.
Library Liaison Program
Subject specialist librarians facilitate faculty and student access to library resources. Find your liaison by name or department. Learn more about L&LS programs and services that can benefit you.
A Marymount graduate or undergraduate student or university employee may be designated to charge out materials for individual faculty members or departments. Contact the library Circulation Desk at (703) 284-1533 or email to set up proxy patron service.
