Embracing the Artist's Book Collection

Some of the most unique and beautiful pieces in the Art + Design Collection from the Corcoran are the Artists' Books. These unconventional books are housed in Gelman's Special Collections Research Center and available for viewing by classes and individuals. Art and Design Librarian Shira Loev Eller has written a guest post on the Art Libraries of North America Book Arts blog about the transition of the collection to Gelman and how GW has embraced these wonderful works of art. You can read her full post here.

Lockers Moving to the Graduate Student Reading Room

We are upgrading the 5th floor Graduate Student Reading Room for Fall!  Based on graduate student feedback the long-neglected lockers hidden away on the first floor (pictured) are moving upstairs. The current bank of lockers, located near the west end of the first floor, will soon be dismantled.  If you are using one of these lockers, please remove your personal lock as well as the contents of the locker before July 6, 2015. After July 6, remaining locks will be cut off and the contents of each locker will be sent to GW UPD's central Lost & Found.

Check back as the summer progresses for photos of the Graduate Student Reading Room improvements.


Eckles Library Operating with Partial Electricity

Due to a power outage, Eckles Library is open and operating on generator electricity only. The latest estimate from PEPCO is that power will not be restored today.

Eckles will remain open as long as possible, but there is no air conditioning in the building. Five public computer workstations are available and patrons may still check out books.  The 24-hour computer lab remains fully operational.  All CI activites scheduled inside Eckles are being moved to other locations on the Mount Vernon Campus.
