GILDING DEMONSTRATION – Artist Kay Jackson (www.KayJacksonArt.com) will provide a gilding demonstration Wednesday, February 15, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM in the May Gallery of Mullen Library. The event is free and open to the public. To request accommodation, please contact Joan Stahl at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-319-6473 at least one week before the event. The event is in conjunction with the current exhibit in the May Gallery of Jackson’s work, “On the Verge of Extinction: Gilding Techniques & Vanishing Species.”
WRLC AND BEYOND – When CUA doesn’t have the book or article you’re interested in, there are two services available to help you get what you need:
- Consortium Loan Service (CLS) – CUA is a member of the Washington Research Library Consortium, a partnership between nine universities in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Our online catalog will show results from all nine WRLC libraries. When CUA doesn’t have the item you need, but another university in the consortium does, you can request that the book be delivered to CUA for you to check out at Mullen Library. To learn how to place a request through the Consortium Loan Service (CLS), check out this short video.
- Inter-Library Lending (ILL) – If none of the WRLC institutions are able to lend the item you need, we can search beyond the consortium to find a library that is willing to lend us their copy through Inter-Library Lending (ILL). The easiest way to submit an ILL request is to first locate the book’s record on WorldCat. To learn how to submit an ILL request, watch this short video.
