Study Spaces

Group Study Rooms

There are several group study rooms on the ground and first floors. The four group study rooms on the first floor can be reserved using the Group Study Room Reservation Form.

The rooms include data and power connectors, a computer, and a large screen to project from your laptop/devices or a TV.

Computing, Printing & Scanning

There are both PC and Mac computers at the library that you can use for your assignments and printing:photo of rows of chairs and computers

  • On the ground floor you can find PCs and Macs in the Computer Commons area
  • On the 2nd floor you can find PCs in the Computer Room
  • To print, you will need to log in with your NetID and password
Connecting to the Wi-Fi

Within the library, there are a few options for connecting to Wi-Fi:

  • The recommended Wi-Fi connection is "eduroam," which requires a Georgetown NetID and password, but gives you full access to resources from the library without any additional authentication.
How to Print

The steps to print include:

  • Select "print" from the software menu (location may differ depending on the software)
  • Choose either SecurePcBw (for black & white printing) or ScurePcClr (for color printing)
  • Use your ID Card to access any printer/photocopier within 24 hours to retrieve your print job
  • Speak with IT if you have any questions about setting up your ID card for printing in the Georgetown building

The library recommends using double-sided printing to save paper.

Photocopiers and Scanners
  • There are several photocopiers within the library where you can both photocopy and scan (these are the same devices used for printing).
  • On the ground and first floors, there are "copy centers" that each has a photocopier.
  • The photocopiers also have the capability to scan to either a USB device or a email address. (Note: the photocopiers can only send emails to email addresses).
