Welcome to the Georgetown Law Library!

 

All incoming students were sent registration information for Westlaw, Lexis Advance, and Bloomberg Law to their unique @georgetown.edu email from the library.  If you can’t find the email, check your SPAM folder or the “Promotions” tab.  Be sure to register before classes begin!

If you haven’t already, sign up for a library tour here.  They’re available throughout Orientation Week.

Information to help you navigate your first week at Georgetown is available in our New Students Guide.  It includes links to your first-week reading assignments, course reserves, library locations to know, library policies, course management systems information, and more!

Don’t hesitate to stop by any of the library service desks with questions, and we’ll be happy to help.  You can find library hours listed online.  Our reference team is available by chat, email, phone, and in-person.

We look forward to getting to know you over the coming year!

Farewell to the Dengrove Courtroom Sketches

A sketch depicting a scene from the Son of Sam trial

Son of Sam Trial

Students returning to campus this fall may wonder what happened to the intriguing courtroom sketches that were on display in the Georgetown Law Library. Their creator, Ida Libby Dengrove, drew some of the most memorable trials of the late twentieth century.

The Dengrove exhibit was provided on loan from the University of Virginia Law Library, and its time with us has come to an end. However, you can still view the collection on the UVA Law Library website and learn more about the events the sketches depict.

Now on display in the the Williams third floor atrium are landscape photos taken by library staff. We hope you enjoy them, and please let us know if you have any feedback of suggestions for future exhibits.

Feedback Wanted: White noise machines in Williams group study rooms

The library is evaluating three models of white noise machines for use in group study rooms, and your feedback is wanted.

The devices under consideration are available for use now in Williams 522A, Williams 524, and Williams 535A. Users can provide feedback via a web form for each machine. The web address for each device’s feedback form is posted on a sign next to the machine in each study room.

Based on your feedback we’ll select a model to place in more study rooms in the future.

To check out the machines, reserve one of these three rooms using our online group study room booking system. (A Georgetown Law NetID is required.)

Here’s a preview of the three machines we’re testing:
