Q. What is Consortium Loan Service (CLS) or WRLC (Washington Research Library Consortium)?
The Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) is a partnership of the libraries and information services of local universities to promote research and preserve and share scholarly resources. The sharing of consortium libraries' resources is the Consortium Loan Service (CLS) that we are able to offer our patrons as a member of the WRLC. Through CLS, our patrons may request a material owned by another WRLC member and have it routed to the Law Library. Currently, WRLC members include the main libraries of Georgetown, American, Catholic, George Mason, George Washington and others.
See our FAQ on how to place a CLS request. For more questions about how to place an order, please consult the Reference Desk. For library account questions, consult the Circulation Desk, 202-662-9131.
