Using the Library

Library Stacks

Woodstock Theological Library is open by appointment to students, faculty and staff of Georgetown University. (Once public health protocols allow for it, Woodstock will be open to members of WRLC institutions and the general public.) Appointments may be made via email. Georgetown patrons can also search for and request materials from Woodstock's circulating collection without having to make an appointment. Patrons can look for materials using HoyaSearch, the library's search system, and from the list of results in HoyaSearch, select "Woodstock" in the location filter. Circulating materials may be requested via HoyaSearch and checked out at Lauinger Library's Circulation Desk.

Rare Books & Archives

The archives and rare books stacks are closed, and access is limited to library staff. Requests to view material can be made through Aeon, the library's rare book and archival management system. Requests must be made two days in advance to allow for shipment from off-site storage. Access to requested material will be made available in the Paul F. Betz Reading Room, located on the 5th floor in the Booth Family Center for Special Collections. More information on reading room policies can be found here. Archival collections can be searched via ArchiveSpace, while the rare book collection can be searched using the following link:
