As decisions about the start of the fall semester continue to unfold, the Library’s overarching goals remain unchanged: to provide the most essential services and content possible in support of Georgetown's teaching, learning, and research agenda. We are committed to designing and delivering high quality services and resources in a manner that remains aligned with the evolving health and safety regulations and guidelines established by the government and the University.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we deal with the challenges and opportunities of these unprecedented times. The Library is here to support you and the needs of Georgetown's academic community throughout this crisis and beyond.
