- 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.
Don’t forget to join the Library for the Scholarly Communication Symposium on Friday, November 1 from 10:00 a.m. to noon! This symposium brings together a panel of experts in computer science, biology and physics to discuss the ways that scientists use the Internet to create knowledge, disseminate and share data and communicate ideas, opinions and concepts. With examples from their own experience, the panelists will highlight some of the greatest opportunities and challenges new technologies offer the sciences. They will also explore the issue of whether the use of the Internet for scholarly communication in science differs from its use in the social sciences or humanities.
Then join us again on Thursday, November 14th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. for a DigitalGeorgetown Meet and Greet. Not sure what DigitalGeorgetown is or how it relates to your research and scholarship? This informal drop-in session will answer all your questions and include hands-on demonstrations to show you how to access and navigate the repository.
