Library Resources

chemistry books on a shelf

Georgetown’s library system—consisting of seven libraries—serves as an invaluable resource and provides access to over 2.8 million volumes and over 35,000 print and electronic journals. The Joseph Mark Lauinger Library serves as the largest library on the university’s main campus. The Blommer Science Library, conveniently located on the third floor of the Reiss Science Building, houses the science collection and provides thorough information services for chemistry students. Chemistry students are also afforded access to the Medical Center’s Dahlgren Memorial Library.
