Friends of the Law Library
Thanks to the generosity of the members of the Friends of the Edward Bennett Williams Law Library program, the Georgetown Law Library is thriving. Through this program our alumni and friends help the Library provide exceptional collections and services.
The Library's distinctive collections place us among the largest in the nation in sheer size. Moreover, the quality of our services, collections, and expanded facilities are recognized as among the finest in the country. In addition, the Law Library is committed to preserving information, whether ancient paper or "born digital." The Library preserves fragile historical documents and texts from the past in our conservation lab. The Library has also created programs to preserve digital information, and make it accessible electronically in a permanent location.
The information age has made great research-oriented law libraries such as ours more relevant than ever before. These libraries are the scholar's link between the past and the future. The Friends of the Edward Bennett Williams Law Library program continues to help make this possible.
Note: Members may use many of the databases available through the Library's on-site public computers. However the Library does not provide Friends with Lexis/Nexis,Westlaw, or BloombergLaw passwords. Friends are not eligible for any law center library borrowing privileges.
When you designate your gift to the Law Library, you help us sustain our renowned library.
