As part of the Corcoran College of Art + Design’s integration with the George Washington University, the collections of the Corcoran College Library will relocate to GW’s Gelman Library.  The Corcoran collection will transfer as an art and design unit located on Gelman’s 1st floor.  Rare or fragile works will be managed in the Special Collections Research Center on Gelman’s 7th floor where they can be maintained in a controlled environment to support their longer term preservation.  The Corcoran art and design collection will be kept together on the 1st floor of Gelman rather than integrated with GW’s general collections. It will be accessible during normal Gelman Library hours.

This collection also includes correspondence, meeting minutes and agendas, handbooks, constitutions, by-laws, rosters, ledgers, brochures and pamphlets, photographs, and ephemera dating from 1930-2013.

Yehuda Nir It is with great sadness that the GW Libraries acknowledge the passing of Dr. Yehuda Nir. Dr. Nir was a well-respected psychiatrist with a specialty in counseling patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. His life as a Holocaust survivor moved him to pursue this line of work and inspired him to write The Lost Childhood: The Complete Memoir, which details the years that Nir and his family spent seeking safety from Nazi persecution.

Dr. Nir and his wife, Dr. Bonnie Maslin, a GW alumna and member of the GW Libraries Development Advisory Council, have been longtime supporters of the Kiev Judaica Collection and an exhibit hall in Gelman Library bears their name.  The GW Libraries remain inspired by Dr. Nir’s resilience, determination, and commitment to making a difference in the world.  Read more about Dr. Nir in the New York Times article celebrating his life.

Catalog makeover

The GW Libraries catalog is getting a makeover for the Fall semester!  A sneak preview (beta test) is available now by selecting the "Catalog" tab above the search box and then clicking "see our new look!"

You can help us by trying it out early and reporting any questions or problems you encounter.  New features will be added throughout the summer.  Search tips for power users are available to replicate "advanced search" options (i.e. search by title or author) until those features are added.
