Why Do I Need a GWID and NetID?

The GWID is your private identifying number. It will only be requested by a University official and it should not be revealed or printed for public scrutiny.

You will need to use your GWID number to establish your required GW email account, also called a NetID. The username and password for this account will allow you access to the research databases and online resources made available by Gelman Library.​

There is a chance you may already have a GWID if you were previously a student, staff or faculty member at GW, or previously applied for these aforementioned roles unsuccessfully. When you apply as a USIP researcher, you will become affiliated with GW as a Visiting Scholar.

Please contact Julie Ramirez in your Human Resources department at USIP to begin Library onboarding.
