Spring 2014 Newsletter
From the Director
As we near the end of this academic year, the library invites you all to celebrate the accomplishments of the year and the upcoming 10th anniversary of the John Wolff International and Comparative Law Library.
A decade after it was built, the Wolff Library remains an integral part of the Georgetown Law Library. Its collections and services have flourished under the leadership of Marylin Raisch, Associate Law Librarian for International and Foreign Law, and the location has become one of the most popular spots on campus.To meet increasing demand, we enabled 24/7 access to Wolff during the Spring 2014 exam period, a change that our students immediately praised and enjoyed. In this issue, Marylin provides a flashback to the establishment of Wolff and describes its development since.
Our Special Collections have also undergone some significant changes this year, one of which was to make its materials more accessible by integrating its finding aids into the library's catalog and Digital Georgetown. Hannah Miller, Special Collections Librarian, provides details on new access resources to the collections, and we hope that those of you with interests in these areas use these new tools to explore some of our digital collections online.
Our last feature focuses on technology and how it can ease collaboration efforts through mobile devices. Jill Smith, Instructional Technology Librarian, highlights useful mobile apps for collaboration.
As always, I would like to close with a heartfelt thank you to all of you for your continued support.The library's services, collections, and facilities would not be what they are without you.We hope that you will remain involved in the library's activities over the next year.
