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.  

Web Accessibility

The George Washington University Libraries are committed to making our websites accessible to all users. We welcome comments or suggestions on access improvements.

GW Libraries web content is designed to be W3C AA compliant. We build our websites and web apps to work across all devices regardless of operating system, browser or screen size. The continual evolution of content, features and code means that some pages or tools may not meet this criteria at all times. Please tell us if you discover content that does not comply with these standards.

Some of our online content (like online books and articles) is built and maintained by outside groups and vendors. GW Libraries strive to have all third party tools comply with accessibility standards but we have no control over the tools themselves.
