The Art & Design Collection from the Corcoran

The George Washington University - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 14:10
August 20, 2014

As part of the Corcoran College of Art + Design’s integration with the George Washington University, the collections of the Corcoran College Library will relocate to GW’s Gelman Library.  This collection will be kept together on the 1st floor of Gelman rather than integrated with GW’s general collections.

Patrons should expect some disruption to the Gelman Library 1st floor between August 20-August 31 as 40,000+ library items are delivered to the building, unpacked, and loaded onto shelves.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause patrons. The GW Libraries staff is working to minimize both the time that the Corcoran collection is unavailable and the disruption to library patrons in both locations.  The Art & Design Collection from the Cororan will be available for use beginning Tuesday, September 2 and accessible during normal Gelman Library hours.

Rare or fragile works will be managed in the Special Collections Research Center on Gelman’s 7th floor where they can be maintained in a controlled environment to support their longer term preservation.
