- 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.
The Reverend Joseph Durkin, S.J. Book Endowment Fund was established in 1972 by Father Durkin's colleagues, friends, and students to honor his many years of devoted service to Georgetown. The fund supports purchases for the Collection in American Studies, which were personally selected by Father Durkin until his passing in 2003.
