Q. Does the library have popular newspapers, magazines or DVDs?
Popular magazines and DVDs can be found in the Williams Reading Room, in and near the Loewinger Lounge area. The Law Library also purchases some bestsellers and newly published novels each year and houses these in the Popular Reading collection. If you like us to consider acquiring a specific movie or novel, please share the title through the suggestion form. You will also find coffee table books in Loewinger Lounge.
We carry the last three months worth of newspapers, like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Washington Post and Financial Times, in print at the Circulation Desk in the atrium. These newspapers and others are also available electronically through our databases. Quick links to our e-newspapers may be found on our News Research guide.
Law students may request popular novels, movies, and games from main campus’ Lauinger Library, as well as from local academic libraries through the Consortium Loan Service. Conduct a WRLC (Georgetown U. + Consortium) search through our library catalog first and then submit a Consortium Loan request. Students may also apply for membership with the D.C. Public Library and gain access to their ebooks and audiobooks and streaming services.
