Accessing Library Resources
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 MU e-Journals 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 WRLC Catalog. 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 catalog and pick them up at the Circulation Desk. When selecting a book or video, choose “Marymount – Main Campus” in the “Deliver to” field on the request page. In approximately three to four hours, you will receive an email letting you know that the item is ready for pick up.
- 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 continue to request library materials from the main campus to be delivered to Ballston Center Library Extension. To do so, select “Marymount – Ballston Center” in the “Deliver to” field 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, or fill out the online Library Instruction Request Form.
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.
Your library liaison can help with database searches and literature reviews and arrange for photocopying and scanning when you are preparing courses or planning your own research and scholarly projects. Use RefWorks to organize references and create citations and bibliographies.
