Himmelfarb Library is now offering Ship to Home services for your Docs2Go book requests.
The Himmelfarb Library Interlibrary Loan service can ship books directly to your residence. When we borrow a print book from another library, you can either pick it up at the library, or we can ship it to you at any location within the United States.
You may find more information on the Shipping Service guide.
Himmelfarb Library's Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery serves the faculty, students, and staff of the Schools of Medicine & Health Sciences, the School of Nursing, and the School of Public Health & Health Services.
We also offer services to registered non-affiliates, such as law firms, corporations, and nonprofits. All users--GWU-affiliates and non-affiliates alike--submit requests through our online paperless Documents2Go portal.
Be sure to check that you are requesting materials through your home library.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
