- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
In addition to collecting and stewarding resources that comprise a current and retrospective record of human knowledge, the Georgetown University Libraries offer a wide array of services, including reference, instruction and research consultation, to ensure unfettered access to information, and to enhance the University’s goals in learning and the creation of knowledge.
