Welcome to the Libraries!

This is a guide designed to help students in the fall 2021 semester understand what's available to them at the libraries!

Borrow Books and Other Materials

Pro Tips

Paging Books: We will page books for you! Need a book from our collection (Lauinger, Blommer, Bioethics, OCS, etc) but don't have time to locate it in the stacks? Simply request the item in HoyaSearch and our staff will grab it for you. Once it is ready for you at our Circulation desk, you will be alerted via email and can come pick it up. 

Self Checkout: Want to check out a book, but the Circ desk is closed? There are self-checkout machines located on the 2nd, 3rd floor, and 4th floors of Lauinger Library.

Course Reserves

Course Reserves provides electronic and media materials to instructors who request them. Electronic reserves are PDF files of scanned journal articles or selected book chapters. Media reserves generally refers to streaming video, but can also refer to audio.

Electronic and media reserves, if your course has them, should be accessible via your course’s Canvas page. When an instructor requests electronic reserves, Access Services provides PDFs and streaming media directly to the instructor, who then adds them to the respective course’s Canvas page. 

If you do not see media reserves or electronic reserves that you are expecting to find in Canvas, please ask your instructor where to find them. Instructors who would like assistance acquiring reserves or posting reserves to Canvas can email us at reserves@georgetown.edu.
