The Library is open 24/7 for the fall semester, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after. The Library’s Reference Desk is open 8:30am until 8:00pm, Monday through Thursday, 8:30am until 5:00pm Friday, and noon until 4:00pm Saturday.

While we see many students and faculty in person, we are very aware that many of you are not on campus. We are happy to teleconference into distance education classes or to hold individual consultations via teleconference. Contact Elaine Sullo at elainej@gwu.edu to schedule a class or consultation. See our research guide for distance education for faculty and students to learn more about how we support you!

Whether on campus or not, each department in the 3 schools served by Himmelfarb (School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Milken Institute School of Public Health and School of Nursing) has a liaison librarian who can work with you to create research guides, reading lists, instruction customized to your class, and much more. To request a librarian “house call,” or to ask for an in-class presentation on an information topic, contact your departmental liaison.

Best wishes for fall 2019!
