Borrowing and Renewing

Check Out Desk

The due date on all borrowed materials has been extended until May 15, 2020, and will be automatically renewed until students return to campus. 

We will communicate directly to work with students who are not returning to campus after the spring semester because of graduation or other circumstances. While it is important that materials be returned to the libraries, we understand these are unprecedented circumstances and will work with the GW community with respect to individual situations. 

The Check Out Desk (formerly Circulation) on the entrance floor of Gelman Library helps patrons to check out library materials, renew books, accept fine payments, and answer questions regarding borrowing or returning materials. 

Stop by the Check Out Desk or contact us directly at:
phone:  202-994-6840
email: librcir@gwu.edu
