Q. Am I allowed to take Law Library books out of the building? How do I do that?
The majority of the books shelved in Loewinger Lounge and the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors of the library can circulate or be checked-out to your library account and then be taken out of the Williams building. We also have DVDs that can be checked-out.
You may bring these items to the Circulation Desk, located on the 2d floor atrium. A staff at the desk will ask for your Georgetown Law GoCard and then check each material out to your library account. The staff will then de-sensitize the items so that you may leave the building with them without activating our security system.
There are materials housed in special locations that cannot be checked out, e.g. Reading Room Study Aids, Reference, etc., while others can be checked out, but for a short period of time, e.g. Casebook Reserves for 3 hours.
More circulation information for each of the different types of library materials can be found on our website. But, please feel free to ask the Circulation Desk, 202-662-9131, if you have any questions about our circulation policies.
