Distance Learners

Marymount University provides library resources for students enrolled in MU online graduate degree programs and study abroad classes. 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 MULibrary Search to identify print and electronic books, book chapters, journal titles, media, 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 Journal Finder 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 Interlibrary Loan to request materials that are not available from either Marymount or the other WRLC libraries. Log in to MULibrary Search to access the interactive ILL form. Be sure to disclose that you are a distance education student in the notes field in order to have the materials mailed to you.
  • Use CLS to request materials listed in MULibrary Search. Select “Reinsch Library” from the “Pickup location at home institution” drop-down menu. In the “Comment” section please share that you are a Distance Education student or “online only student” and provide a shipping address. If you are requesting multiple items, please note that as well so that we may package them together. A return shipping label will be included with your item(s). All shipping labels will match the weight of the original package that was sent to you.
