Welcome back! The library is here to serve your research needs and to provide you with a place to study. We are undergoing some changes which may create a few inconveniences this semester, but we look forward to serving you in an improved space when all the work is complete. While spaces for relocating library staff are being built, some study rooms have been taken offline, but these – and some new ones on the 5th floor — will be freed up as soon as staff are able to move.
The services and collections of the John Wolff Comparative and International Library have been reintegrated into the Edward Bennett Williams Library so that all of our collections are now under one roof. Wolff will no longer be a location for checking out books or retrieving requested books. All of that will now take place at the Williams Circulation Desk. All reference desk services have also moved over to the Williams Library, and we now offer a single desk for domestic and international reference questions. However, the contact information for reaching the foreign and international librarians remains active, so if you call 202-662-4195 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance on foreign, comparative, or international law research, you will continue to receive responses.
For all other library services, come to the Circulation Desk at Williams or call 202-662-9131 or email email@example.com. You can also request Reference services by emailing the reference desk at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 202-662-9140, or Chat With A Librarian.
By the end of this week, the third floor of Hotung will offer 24/7 study space where the Wolff shelves have been removed. That space also includes printing facilities. Study rooms in this area will open up later this semester, once staff have been able to move.
