NOTICE:

Access to the Gelman and VSTC Library buildings is available only to residential students and to GW students, faculty, and staff who have special permission to be on campus (the on-campus cohort) and a quarantine status of "cleared." Those who are not part of the on-campus cohort will not have physical access to campus buildings. Seat reservations are required. 

Fines and Fees

The due date on all borrowed materials originally due between, March 13 - August 31 has been automatically extended. No fees or fines have been assessed on those items. 

During this time, only materials held by GW Libraries were circulating to the GW community and there was no urgency to have materials returned. Now that consortium loan services have resumed, it is important that items are returned so that they can remain available to the GW and WRLC community. 

Beginning on September 1, due dates will no longer be automatically extended. To avoid items becoming overdue, borrowers must renew outstanding items online through their library accounts. Borrowers may renew items up to three times, but this will no longer be done automatically. Once an item has met its renewal limit it must be returned to the library. 

For any questions or concerns regarding material returns, e-mail GW Libraries' Access Services team.


Fines for overdue or lost items GW owns may be paid by phone with a credit card*. To make a payment call 202-530-3947.

We are unable to accept cash, Gwolrd, checks and money orders in person or by mail at the time.

*we accept all major credit cards, except American Express.

Fines owed to any WRLC consortium school may be paid at your home institution library  or directly to that school. The grid below provides detailed contact and payment information for our consortium partners.
