NOTICE:

Building access is available to GW students, faculty, and staff who have submitted proof of vaccination and had that documentation accepted or were approved for a vaccine exception. They must also have taken their required COVID test and have a GWorld card that is enabled for campus access. GWorld access is typically enabled within about two hours of the COVID test. No one will be allowed to sign in without a physical GWorld card or enter the library if their GWorld card tap is denied. Library access is not available for alumni or visitors.  

Entrance Policies

During the summer of 2021, entrance to Gelman library is available to GW students, faculty, and staff who have a physical GWorld card enabled for campus access. No one will be allowed to sign in without a physical GWorld card or enter the library if their GWorld card tap is denied.

All students, faculty, staff, alumni with borrowing privileges, and visiting scholars with borrowing privileges can request materials to pick up in the entrance lobby. 

Gelman Library's building and general collections are closed to the public. As the library at a private institution, we are obligated to focus our limited resources on our primary users, the students, faculty and staff of George Washington University.

How to make sure your GWorld is enabled for campus access

The value currently set for your On Site (or On Campus indicator) can be reviewed in GWeb. Reference this document for more information. In addition to your On Site status, please check your hold status at least 24-hours before you plan to use the library.
