Connecting via GW NetID

Himmelfarb Library recommends the VPN for the most seamless experience accessing our resources from off-campus.

The GW NetID login provides an alternate method of off-campus access to many of our web-based resources to GW faculty, staff, and students.

Users must know their GW NetID and password; the GW NetID and password are the same login/password used to login to GW Email and Blackboard.

Access Instructions

  1. Access the Himmelfarb Library website, and select the database, e-text, or e-journal which you would like to access.
  2. When the 'George Washington University Single Sign-on' webpage is displayed, securely login with your GW NetID and password (i.e. the same login/password used for your GW Email and Blackboard.
  3. The database, e-text, or e-journal that you selected should display automatically.


SMHS, GWSPH, and SON faculty, students and staff should contact the Himmelfarb Library Reference Desk at (202) 994-2850 or with access problems.
