AMERICAN UNIVERSITY (THE BENDER LIBRARY)
Due to Wesley's relationship with the American University, Wesley students, staff, and faculty may borrow materials from the American University Library. Please take your validated Wesley IDs to the American University Bender Library and apply for borrowing privileges at the Circulation Desk. To view resources available through the Bender Library, visit www.american.edu/library.
THE LIBRARIES OF THE WASHINGTON THEOLOGICAL CONSORTIUM
Wesley students and faculty may borrow books directly from the various libraries of the Washington Theological Consortium (WTC). Each semester before going to the WTC partner library, students and faculty will need to acquire a Washington Theological Consortium form signed by a Wesley librarian. At the WTC partner library, students and faculty will need to present the signed form and a validated Wesley ID before direct borrowing privileges will be given. Please see any full time Library staff member for assistance. For more information and a list of participating institutions and libraries, visit http://washtheocon.org/libraries.
WorldCat is the world's largest network of library content and services. Through WorldCat, you can view the holdings of public, academic, and special libraries across the world. In addition to searching library holdings, if you are on campus you can use WorldCat to request items through InterLibrary Loan (ILL). (For more information about ILL, visit our InterLibrary Loan Services page.) For more information about WorldCat, visit www.worldcat.org.
