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.

Recommended Reading: Travel Reads

Sheltering in place might be limiting our mobility, but to paraphrase author Jhumpa Lahiri, books let you travel when you can’t move your feet. This month's Recommended Reading Virtual Display features books on travel in its many forms.

New Anti-Racism Toolkit Available

The Library’s new Anti-Racism Toolkit is a compilation of books, courses, articles, and other resources that can serve as a launch point for further study and information for discussions about race and inclusion in our society. Georgetown University librarians created the toolkit in the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many others.
