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.  

About the GRC

The Global Resources Center (GRC) is a specialized library service point tailored to the needs of George Washington University’s globally-focused academic programs. The GWU community is our first priority, and we encourage you to contact us with your questions or to let us help you with your research needs.

The GRC offers a unique combination of print, electronic, and digital resources, including many English- and foreign-language newspapers, journals, magazines, statistical publications, maps, atlases, U.S. and foreign government documents, and other primary source material.

Specialists in regional and country-level studies have tailored the GRC collections to parallel the emphasis of GWU programs and to highlight the broad themes cutting across international, regional, and country studies, including policy studies, economic and social conditions, national security, politics, conflict resolution, political psychology, international development, migration, education, cultural studies, and law.  

Our interdisciplinary collections include five specialized collections: the China Documentation Center (CDC); Okinawa CollectionJapan Resource Center (JRC); Taiwan Resource Center (TRC); Resource Center for Russia, Eurasia, and Eastern and Central Europe (REECE); and Middle East and North Africa Resource Center (MENA).

GRC specialists have earned an excellent reputation across campus for their work with students, faculty and the broader DC community of researchers and analysts. We encourage you to contact us so that we can help you find the research materials you need.
