The Corcoran School of the Arts & DesignAs 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.  This collection will be kept together on the 1st floor of Gelman rather than integrated with GW’s general collections.

Patrons should expect some disruption to the Gelman Library 1st floor between August 20-August 31 as 40,000+ library items are delivered to the building, unpacked, and loaded onto shelves.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause patrons. The GW Libraries staff is working to minimize both the time that the Corcoran collection is unavailable and the disruption to library patrons in both locations.  The Art & Design Collection from the Cororan will be available for use beginning Tuesday, September 2 and accessible during normal Gelman Library hours.

Special Collections is pleased to announce a new collection from former GW faculty member Lawrence Laurent, a prominent D.C. radio and television critic. The collection contains course material from Laurent’s time in the Journalism and Media and Public Affairs departments, as well as speeches, correspondence, and photographs from his career as a critic for The Washington Post.

In this photograph from November of 1955, Laurent (left) is pictured with World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Marciano at boxing promoter Goldie Ahearn’s Washington, D.C. restaurant. Marciano was the only boxer to go untied and undefeated while holding the world heavyweight title. For more information on this collection, you can browse the finding aid for the Lawrence Laurent papers.
