During operating hours, building access is available to GW students, faculty, and staff who have completed all of the steps outlined on GW's Onward website. 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. Masks are required inside all library buildings.

Formatting Your Content

To provide a professional and consistent look for ETDs, GW has created a set of general, uniform formatting standards for page margins, pagination, line spacing, page order, and pages in the front matter. Within this formatting framework, some individual colleges and schools have further formatting requirements for the body of the document.
