NOTICE: The Library is continuing to work on the transition to a new and improved library management system. As the transition continues some functions and services will continue to operate at a limited capacity. Users can still check out and return items and search the catalog. Users will not be able to log in to their library accounts, request items online, or use self check-out machines. If you have questions please email email@example.com or call (202) 687-7607. Thank you for your continued patience during this transition.
Georgetown University Library, in partnership with the Law Library, Bioethics Research Library and GU Press, participated in Open Access Week 2013, a worldwide event to raise awareness of the benefits of open access throughout the research community. the 2013 Open Access Week speaker was Dr. Rebecca Tushnet of the GU Law Center, who gave a lecture on the legal and practical implications of Open Access, followed by a librarian-led panel discussion of the objectives of Open Access, its implications for publication of research and the resources Georgetown University Libraries offer to support open access self-archiving.
