Woodstock Theological Library Closes as Collections Integrated into Lauinger

Woodstock Theological Library logo

After more than two years of planning for the integration of Woodstock Theological Library collections with other Lauinger holdings, the Woodstock Library space is now closed and materials are being re-shelved.

Although Woodstock's physical space is closed, all titles previously housed in Woodstock Library remain available to the Georgetown University community and visiting scholars.

All former Woodstock titles are searchable through HoyaSearch. Because some titles are still in transition to their permanent shelving location, we encourage you to use HoyaSearch’s request function to get access to the titles you seek. Library staff will find the item(s) you have requested and send you an email when the item(s) are ready for pick up at your selected service desk.

For more information about the transition and history of the Woodstock Theological Library, please refer to this 2020 article.

Note: Former Woodstock Theological Library Director Leon Hooper, S.J., retired January 13, 2023 after 19 years at Georgetown.

Through the end of 2023 academic year, Adrian Vaagenes, the former Woodstock Digital & Archival Services Librarian, will provide instruction and research services related to theology and religious studies. Ryan Johnson, Head of Research Services, will serve during this time as the collections liaison to faculty and students in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies.
