Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC)

The Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) was established in 1987 by some of the major universities in the Washington D.C. area to share library collections and information technology in order to enhance the resources available to their students and faculty. Georgetown participates in the WRLC through its Consortium Loan Service (CLS) and through cooperative collection development. WRLC operates a shared offsite storage facility designed to free valuable space in the campus libraries for newer or more frequently-accessed materials. The storage facility provides high-density, environmentally-controlled, retrievable storage for books, audiovisual or microform media, and archival boxes. Individual items are sorted by size in order to store the maximum number of items in the minimum floor area. Students and faculty of WRLC libraries may submit online requests for items stored at the "WRLC Center" using HoyaSearchIf you request an item and it is available, it will arrive in 1-3 days.
