Library study seat appointments for our on-campus cohort can now be booked for any length of time between our business hours of 9:30am-6:00pm weekdays.

On-campus students may also book multiple shorter appointments in the same day. If you need to leave the library (for lunch, a lab course, etc.), your appointment will end and you will need to book a new one if you plan to return.

Masks are required in the library (eating is not permitted; you may unmask briefly to take a drink when needed).

On-campus cohort members may use the Study Space Reservation website to book a seat in the library, up to 2 weeks in advance of visiting.

Research Guides: Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery: Identifying your Home Library

Do you know which branch is your home library?

To request library books and articles, be sure to log into library services in a way that identifies you as a Medical/SON/Public Health student or staff member, a Law affiliate, or "Everyone Else" from our university programs and departments. This connects you to the correct library staff that directly manages your library account.

The easiest way is to start off at your "home library's" own website.

SON and other School of Medicine affiliates at VSTC: the Himmelfarb Library is always considered your "home library," even though they are located in DC. Start your online research here: himmelfarb.gwu.edu

More information on SON/SMHS Himmelfarb services, including their Docs2Go interlibrary loan service, is available in their online guide:
https://guides.himmelfarb.gwu.edu/c.php?g=27852&p=8206083

GSEHD, SEAS, CPS, and nearly everyone else at VSTC should use: library.gwu.edu
Our interlibrary loan service is linked on the dark blue toolbar under "Library Services." The VSTC Library is part of this generalized GW library system, of which the Gelman Library is the main branch.

We're edging closer to the holidays! Don't forget to renew or return books that might be due soon.

Students and staff in our on-campus cohort with building access may return items to the library's book slot in Enterprise Hall, on the wall between the library (#179) and Classroom #176.

Everyone, with or without building access, may use our 24/7 book drop located at the north entrance of Enterprise Hall (the same entrance used for GW Covid testing, facing Geo. Washington Blvd.). Walk through the first set of doors (no GWorld Card required), and you'll see a blue bin for library returns. A book drop is also available at the Gelman Library on the main campus.

Distance students may mail books back to our location or to the Gelman Library.
