Q. As a Georgetown Law student, can I walk into a local library and check-out books?


Georgetown Law students can visit the member libraries of the local Washington Research Library Consortium. Prior to visiting another library, we recommend that you check the library's website for hours and any restrictions (e.g. for examination periods). With your GU GoCard, you may check a book out from a member library. Note that the local law libraries are not full members of the consortium. Therefore, you will not be able to check-out a book from the law libraries directly. Please use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to have another library's book shipped to this library on your behalf.

If you are a local university student, please note that this Law Library is not open to the general public. We also do not lend through the consortium service. Please use your library's ILL service to borrow titles owned by this library.

For further questions, please reach out to the Circulation Desk, 202-662-9131, lawcirc@georgetown.edu.
