Issue: GW users who access Himmelfarb Library's online resources from other institutions or sites which use a single sign-on (e.g. Children's National, GW Medical Faculty Associates, etc.) aren't able to login to Himmelfarb Library resources. The local institution's account information is automatically submitted to GW's single sign-on system rather than the user's GW UserID account information.
Option #1: Use one web browser for most work and reserve a second web browser for logging into Himmelfarb Library and other GW functions. This option works well if you are working from a computer that you use regularly as you can remain logged in.
Option #2: Open an 'incognito' browser window. This option works well if you are working from a computer that is shared with other users.
Himmelfarb Librarians are here to help. We can provide assistance with access, searching the databases, finding full-text articles, creating durable links, citing resources, and much more.
