- 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.
Georgetown Crew poster, circa 1904.
This early 20th-century lithographic print was cracked, brittle, discolored and deteriorating. Conservation included: surface cleaning; mending cracks with toned paper and cellulose powder; humidifying and flattening the print under pressure; deacidification; toning image losses at cracks with Winsor and Newton watercolors; and hinging the print into a window mat for further protection into the future.
