Library Orientation

Use this guide for an orientation to the UDC Library's resources and services and for tips on starting and completing a research project.

WRLC

UDC belongs to the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC).

The nine member libraries share circulating materials with each other and have a common library catalog.

You can use the catalog to look for materials in all of the libraries' collections at one time, or you can limit your search to any one of the libraries.

Local Libraries

The Washington, D.C. area is also home to many other libraries and archives with important collections that may be valuable for research. These institutions are not members of WRLC, so UDC students and faculty do not automatically have borrowing privileges. Please contact the individual libraries regarding their policies.
