In 2019 the Library moved into the newly renovated, seven-story Crosland Tower, originally built in 1968 to house the library's exploding physical collections. Price-Gilbert will reopen in 2020, at which time the library renewal, called Library Next, will be complete.
The Georgia Tech Library features more than 1.2 million items in its circulating collection, including books, e-books, music and movies. The majority of this physical collection is housed in cold storage at the Library Service Center in partnership with Emory University, meaning students, faculty and staff have access to their muilti-million volume collection, as well. This partnership continues to expand, so check the catalog regularly for new items.
This library is primarily a digital-first organization, meaning our customers use our electronic resources most heavily, averaging more than four million downloads a year from more than 35,000 databases covering virtually every conceivable topic of scholarship. We also offer access to numerous news and government sources.
