Liaison Librarians – Each field of study at CUA has a Liaison Librarian available to provide research assistance and library instruction. To find your liaison, please see the complete list by subject at

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 have the book 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.

Distance Learners – If you are a student in one of CUA’s online programs through Engage, or if you are a graduate student completing your dissertation away from campus, please visit our page for Distance Learners. This page conveniently places all the tools you need to access the library’s resources from afar.

Center for Academic Success and Writing Center – The University Libraries is pleased to welcome the Center for Academic Success to Mullen Library. The check-in desk is located at the main entrance to the second floor. The Writing Center is also now located on the second floor in room 219. To learn more, please visit the Center for Academic Success’s website at or the Writing Center’s website at
