- 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.
With the addition of several streaming media collections, the Library's collection of online video has now surpassed the number of DVDs and tapes available. Films on Demand includes 10,000 streaming documentaries, educational films and instructional videos from PBS series like American Experience, Frontline, Ken Burns's Jazz and The Civil War, and over 300 titles in The Bill Moyers Collection. Independent filmmakers are also well represented; Georgetown professor Benjamin Harbert's film Follow Me Down: Portraits of Louisiana Prison Musicians is available for free once you log in with your Georgetown NetID.
Filmakers Library is another large streaming video library with 2,000 documentaries on race and gender studies, human rights, global studies, multiculturalism, international relations, the environment, bioethics, health, political science and current events, psychology, arts, literature and more. While you are watching one of the many titles in these collections, notice that the transcripts for most films are also available, making quoting them a breeze.
