Consortium Loan Service (CLS): Consortium Loan Service at Himmelfarb

This guide is designed to facilitate users through the borrowing of consortium books, known as the Consortium Loan Service (CLS)

2021 CLS Update

Books requested via Consortium Loan Service (CLS) can now be mailed to you. See the pickup locations tab for more information. 


Himmelfarb is part of a larger group of libraries called the Washington Research Library Consortium, also known as WRLC. Being part of a consortium brings more resources to George Washington University. This means that you can request resources from other participating libraries and have them shipped to Himmelfarb within a few business days. There is no cost to the borrower and there is no limit on the amount of requests you can place.


Who is Eligible to request CLS materials?

SMHS, GWSPH, and SON affiliates including students, residents, faculty and staff. GW faculty and staff that are not affiliates must use their home library for this service.
