Faculty may have books pulled from the George Washington University collection and consortium library collections through the CLS (Consortium Loan Service) request link in the catalog. CLS requests will be held at the Gelman Library (or the Eckles Library or the Virginia Campus Library) circulation desk.
The library permits GW faculty members to authorize one individual to charge out materials in the faculty member’s name. This permission is extended as a courtesy to the faculty member and should be used only when obtaining materials for the faculty member to use directly. When an individual is obtaining materials for personal use, such materials should be charged out in the individual’s own name according to his/her library privileges. A faculty member is responsible for all materials charged to this authorization.
To authorize a proxy borrower, please complete the Proxy Authorization Form and return it in person or by mail to the Check Out Desk, Gelman Library, 2130 H Street, NW, Washington DC, 20052 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information, please contact any manager at the Check Out Desk at 202.994.6840.
