- 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.
Before requesting an item held in Qatar please check to see if the item is available ("not charged" status) from one of the WRLC libraries.
If the item is not available from a WRLC library but the library has a copy that is checked out, you must place a recall on that copy. If the user has had the item for over a month regardless of the due date, they have 7 days to return the book before being assessed a recall fine of $5 per day per item. If the item is only available from the Qatar Library, place a hold through GEORGE by clicking on the "Request" button and the library will try to rush order a copy for the collection or request Qatar send their copy. If the item is available from a WRLC school, your request from Qatar will be canceled.
Note: Due to distance, materials can take up to 10 days to arrive.
If you have any questions, please call the Lauinger Circulation desk at 202-687-7607 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
