Library Resources

The Georgetown University Library is working to ensure that faculty and students have access to course materials during the period of remote instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their goal is to make as many course materials as possible available electronically through password-protected Canvas course sites during this unprecedented health crisis. Read More.

They continue to be available to provide research consultations and instruction via Zoom, and will remain on the Library’s chat service as well as on email. Please visit this page for more information.

E-books and E-journals

Lauinger Library at Georgetown University has a large collection of books and journals in electronic format that are accessible to the Georgetown community from on-campus or off-campus through HoyaSearch. For assistance locating Library materials, email, contact your subject specialist, or use one of our Research Guides. If you encounter a problem with one of our e-resources, contact the Library Electronic Resources Help Desk at


Lauinger Library offers an electronic reserves service to faculty members who would like to share their course readings electronically. Instructors may also submit article/chapter information and request that the library find these materials; this service, however, may take some time, depending on the availability of the requested materials. For more information, please visit the Library’s web page on placing reserves or email them at

Connect with the Library Online

During times of instructional continuity, the Library makes every effort to remain open, though hours may be shortened. The Library provides information and research assistance through chat, email, or by scheduling a Zoom consultation. For more information, visit the Library’s Ask Us page.

Tip of the Week

As we near the end of the semester, many students will be preparing final presentations, individually or in groups. Take a look at our resources on oral presentations in a virtual learning environment for ideas that can help make virtual presentations during class as smooth as possible. If your final exam will be a traditional test and you’re looking for ideas on fostering academic integrity during test-taking, consider these “analog” techniques.

Reminder: Please update your course description and syllabus in GU360 to keep students informed as they make course decisions.
