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.

GIS allows us to create interactive maps that help to visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts. A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.2 mapping software is loaded on all Windows computers throughout Lauinger Library and Blommer Science Library. For use on Personal computers, a downloadable version of ArcGIS is available for use by Georgetown students, faculty and staff. Windows only. Please see Lauinger Access Services at the third floor circulation desk for more information.

Access Services also circulates the GeoLytics software that contains U.S. Census data from 1970-2000. With this product, custom spreadsheets or map layers may be created.
