The Gelman Library will be closed the weekend of August 10-11 for a required power outage related to the upgrade of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The building will close at 5pm on Friday, August 9, and re-open on Monday morning, August 12, at 8am. Though the air handlers should be operating when the building reopens, temperatures throughout the building may still be elevated on Monday morning due to the power outage.
*PLEASE NOTE: My Library Account will be unavailable from Friday, August 9 at 8am until Monday, August 12. This means patrons will not be able to renew books online, nor retrieve articles previously delivered via CLS. Also beginning August 12, "My Library Account" will be renamed "My Library Account". We apologize for any inconvenience as the WRLC upgrades their catalog.
Also beginning August 12, the current H-street entrance will be closed permanently and all patrons and staff will be directed to use the new entrance off Kogan Plaza, onto the renovated entrance floor. Wheelchair access is located to the left of the stairway leading to the new entrance. Please be patient with us as we all get used to this new space. If you notice a problem or think something is fantastic, let a member of our staff know!
The first floor will remain open for use until further notice and is accessible via the elevators, center and back stairwells. Please note: Between August 13 and August 25, there will be renovation and construction work underway on this level.
We appreciate your patience as we complete the transformation of Gelman Library. Please visit library.gwu.edu, or our twitter and facebook pages for updates.
