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.  

Faculty and Graduate Student Retrieval Service

GW faculty and graduate students may request Gelman and VSTC Library materials using the Catalog's request options.

Chapters from books can be scanned and delivered electronically, and books from the stacks can be retrieved and shipped to your off-campus address.

Search for the GW book title in the catalog, click on the title to view the full page record, and then click either the "Borrow Item" or "Chapter/Article Request" link under Availability.

If an item turns out to be unavailable at GW, your request can be forwarded on to another consortium library, or can be requested through Interlibrary Loan.

Questions about the Faculty and Graduate Student Retrieval Service may be directed to Glenn Canner, Manager of Resource Sharing and Course Reserves, at gcanner@gwu.edu.
