If Himmelfarb does not have access to an article you find in PubMed, you may find this blue Find It @ Himmelfarb button, which will take you to a catalog page for the article, which allows you to request the book via Documents2Go.
You may have also found this page by searching the Himmelfarb catalog. Either way, the process is the same. From the catalog, click the Documents2Go link (you will be asked to sign in with your GW UserID):
Once on the Documents2Go portal, your citation will automatically be entered into Documents2Go. Click 'submit' at the bottom of the page to complete your request.
First, make sure that the title is unavailable through either Gelman, or any WRLC library. Once you've determined this, proceed to Documents2Go and login with your GW UserID and password.
To create a new request, click the arrow underneath 'New Request' and select the type of request you are looking for.
Make sure to add the PubMed ID if making an article request. You can find the PubMed ID of an article just below the title:
In many, if not most cases, the PubMed ID (PMID) will auto-fill your citation for your request. If you do not have a PubMed ID, please fill out as much of the request with as much citation information as you are able to provide. Once you have filled out all applicable fields, hit the 'submit request' button near the bottom of the page.
You can login to most GW resources (e.g. email, Blackboard, library, GW Box, etc.) with your GW UserID and password. Your UserID will look different depending on if you created your GW account before or after May 22, 2022.
|Accounts created before May 22, 2022||
An ID you provided when you claimed your account
Your full email address is your UserID followed by "@gwmail.gwu.edu" (students) or "@email.gwu.edu" (faculty/staff).
"UserID@gwu.edu" can be used as a short form of your email address.
Example: email@example.com (faculty/staff), firstname.lastname@example.org (student)
|Accounts created after May 22, 2022||
Same as GWID
Firstname.Lastname, followed by "@gwmail.gwu.edu" (students) or "@email.gwu.edu" (faculty/staff). In cases where multiple individuals share the same first and last name, a number will be added to the last name.
"FirstName.Lastname@gwu.edu / FirstName.Lastnameemail@example.com" can be used as a short form of your email address.
Example: Jane.Doe@email.gwu.edu (faculty/staff), John.Doe6@gwmail.gwu.edu (student)
Regardless of your UserID/Email Address style, there may be minor variations in login depending on the service. Here are some of the most common setups to be aware of:
|Most resources (using GW single sign-on)||
Your UserID followed by "@gwu.edu"
Examples: firstname.lastname@example.org (legacy accounts), G12345678@gwu.edu (new accounts)
Cisco AnyConnect VPN
Examples: jdoe3 (legacy accounts), G12345678 (new accounts)
Most GW resources now require you to enable a secondary method of authentication on your account for security. Current options include an authenticator app, text message, or automated phone call. For more information see the GW IT page on Two-Step Authentication.
