Georgetown offers the unparalleled research resources of Washington, D.C.: the 26 million volumes of the Library of Congress; the National Archives; the remarkable range of specialized libraries, such as the National Library of Medicine at NIH, the Folger Shakespeare Library (which contains a superb collection on early-modern Continental European and English history), the Department of Agriculture's library, the finest of its kind in the world, and several others. The University's Lauinger Library contains over 1.3 million volumes and a range of special collections.
Washington, DC, offers a wonderful array of cultural opportunities, including museums, lectures, films, theater, and music. The University has a constant flow of speakers. The Department of History hosts a regular seminar on faculty research in addition to the many seminar series sponsored by the Georgetown Institute for Global History. The department also hosts conferences and visiting scholars. Graduate students are invited—and expected—to become regular participants in every aspect of the intellectual life of the department.
