Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service available to current GW students, faculty members, and staff to obtain material not owned by any of the GWU libraries or Washington Research Libraries Consortium (WRLC) libraries.

When searching for Korean Studies material, either Korean script (한글) or the McCune-Reischauer Romanization system can be used. Since the Library of Congress follows the McCune-Reischauer system to romanize Korean, all the Korean records at the GW libraries will follow the same system.
For example, if your search word is "한국의 문화 유적", transliteration will be "Hanguk ŭi munhwa yujŏk" following McCune-Reischauer Romanization system. If you are searching using Korean script, leaving a space after the grammatical particles as in "한국 의 문화 유적" might bring a better search result. Either way, there are a number of search tips that can be employed. For more information, check out the followings:
