Holds vs. ILLs

As a Wesley student, you have access to millions more resources than you’ll find on campus. Items from Delaware public libraries can be put on hold and items from other colleges and universities can be request through Inter-Library Loan (ILL). What’s the difference between a Hold and an Inter-Library Loan (ILL)?

George Washington Society Collection

The George Washington Society is a non-political historical group, founded in May of 1982, dedicated to the promotion of a better understanding of George Washington and his ideals, achievements and contributions. The group cooperates with Mount Vernon on promoting educational resources, and has established similar programs for the public, including co-sponsoring an annual essay contest for high school students. Occasionally, the group takes trips to places of historic interest. Members can also participate by volunteering to speak on an appropriate subject of historical interest.

As the membership grew, the Society began collecting books and memorabilia relating to Washington. This collection is now housed in the archives of Wesley College. (Full finding aid here.) The items in the George Washington Collection span from 1789 – 2016 and include books, papers, photographs, art work, and memorabilia.
