Wolff Changes

The Wolff Library will be unstaffed starting Sunday, July 9, 2017.  The study spaces on the 3rd and 4th floors of Hotung in the Wolff space will remain available until mid-August, when construction is scheduled to begin.  Once shelving is removed from the 3rd floor of Hotung, all student seating will be moved onto this area, and this study space will remain available throughout construction.  

For library services, come to the E.B. Williams Circulation Desk or call 202-662-9131 or email You can also request Reference services by emailing the Williams desk at, call 202-662-9140, or Chat With A Librarian.

After climbing to the 5th floor of Williams Library, you may need to replenish your water supply.   Use one of the new hydration stations recently installed.  Thanks to our great tFile_000eam 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.  The fountains on the 5th floor were first on our list because plumbing problems necessitated their repair.  Other drinking fountains, in both Williams, and Wolff, will continue to be replaced/installed as funds become available. ​
