2017 Student Library Survey: Resources and Services Update

In the recent student survey, we received several requests for services or resources that we already offer, and we are pleased to highlight them here. If you have additional questions about any of these, please contact any of our service desks.

  1. Leisure reading and DVD collections can be found in the Williams Reading Room near the Loewinger Lounge. The library purchases some bestsellers and newly published novels each year to add to our Popular Reading Collection. Students may also request books from the main campus’ Lauinger Library, as well as from local libraries through the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC). Students may also apply for membership with the D.C. Public Library.
  2. Thanks to our great team in Facilities, we now have 2 new hydration stations on the 5th floor of Williams. They have both the bottle filling and regular drinking fountain features.   Other drinking fountains can be found in the Williams Reading Room and 3rd Floor Wolff Library.
  3. Georgetown Law Library patrons may eat snacks in both the Williams and Wolff Library locations in most areas. Aromatic, noisy, or greasy foods are not permitted. No food is allowed in the Williams Reading Room (2nd floor), the Special Collections Reading Room (2nd floor), the media rooms (Williams 1st floor and Wolff 4011), or the computer lab and computer learning centers (Williams Reading Room 2nd floor, Williams 3rd floor west side, and Wolff 4006). Beverages in closed containers are permitted in the library except in these locations: the computer lab and computer learning centers. For those wishing to purchase snacks and drinks or to consume larger meals, please visit our self-service café, Legal Eats (Williams 1st floor). A hot water dispenser can be found in the café as well.
  4. Legal Eats has implemented a daily delivery and begun to offer healthier, fresh and high protein items, such as fresh pressed juice, sparkling water, tea, more fruit, gluten free bars and snacks from QUEST and Food Should Taste Good. They are also working on meat free and vegan entrée options. During finals, the café is replenished twice per day, and coffee is priced at $1.00.
  5. For access to the Washington Post and the New York Times websites, students may set up free access of the Washingtonpost.com by signing on with their .edu e-mail address. To register for free digital access, please follow the directions provided here and create your account with this form. Also, Press Display provides a replica of the paper on the day of publication, with the articles as they appear in print. The library has looked into an institutional New York Times subscription in the past and its cost was prohibitive. Students may subscribe to the academic rate of $1.00 per week for individual access to the NYTimes.com. You may also use our ProQuest and LexisNexis Academic databases for free access to the articles in html full-text version.
  6. Other savings and discount programs are available through the GU Advantage benefits site: http://beneplace.com/georgetown.
