- 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.
Library users can now sign up to receive text messages alerts about their accounts! Sign up through your account page to be notified via text message you have books ready to be picked up, due dates approaching or overdue items. The types of notifications you will receive are:
- Hold Pickup
- Hold Cancellation
- Courtesy Notices (Due Date Approaching)
- Overdue Notices
- Hourly Overdue Notices
- Renewal Problem Notices
To sign up for alerts, log into your GEORGE account and click on “Register for Text Message Alerts” in the box at the top of Your Account page. Once you fill out the required information, you will receive a confirmation text message.
Note that these alerts only cover Georgetown University Library materials and do not include items from the WRLC or Interlibrary Loan. For more information, visit library.georgetown.edu/text-message-alerts.
