Electronic Access

Selected premium online resources have been made available to alumni through the generous support of the GW Alumni Association and GW Libraries and Academic Innovation.  Unfortunately, Himmelfarb Library’s online collection is not available for remote online access by alumni due to our license agreements which permit remote access by current students, faculty, and staff only.
