NOTICE: The Library is planning to implement a new library management system on July 18. In preparation for this transition some functions and services will operate at a limited capacity starting July 12 at 12:00 pm. 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 accessservices@georgetown.edu or call (202) 687-7607.

The Booth Family Center for Special Collections is now using the Aeon request management system for all patron registration and materials requests. Learn more about Aeon or create an Aeon account at aeon.library.georgetown.edu.

Color Our Collections

Libraries, Archives, Museums, and other cultural institutions hosted #ColorOurCollections again this month to draw attention to some of the many wonderful images found in books, manuscripts, works of art, or just doodles found in the margins.

Try your hand at coloring some of our cultural heritage collections. Imagine yourself in a scriptorium inside a European monastery, guided by only candlelight, working side by side with other scribes and artists. Print our pages and share them whenever you want. We’ll be happy to see your creative work! Just tag your image with #gtownlibrary to be included in our curated collection.
