- 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.
Jennifer Boettcher, Georgetown's business librarian, has won this year’s Emerald Research Grant Award. The grant is given yearly to support research in the field of business librarianship by the Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) division of the American Library Association. Boettcher will use the grant to create a Web-based finding aid that will help both business librarians and patrons use core business titles that have been discounted, sold or recreated into new formats. The database will track these sources and provide a list of where to find similar information that these seminal works provided. In selecting Boettcher’s proposal for this year’s award, the committee highlighted the thorough and detailed methodology, scope, timetable and projected outcomes for the project. Keep an eye out for this excellent project!
