The George Washington University Libraries announced Monday that the Virginia Science and Technology Campus Library located at Enterprise Hall will offer access 24 hours a day, seven days a week to members of the GW community.

Students, faculty and staff can use their GWorld identification cards to gain automated entry to the library for access to study space, computers and other resources. New hours begin Oct. 26.

Vice Provost for Libraries and University Librarian Geneva Henry said the increased access is a response to student need.

“Our students expressed a need for 24-hour access to quality study space, and we are pleased to provide that at the VSTC Library,” Ms. Henry said. “We are continually searching for ways to better meet the needs of all students and support learning and research.”

VSTC Library staff will continue to be available on-site 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday to assist with research and checking out books.

One-on-one research consultations with a librarian also are available by appointment during normal business hours at the Estelle and Melvin Gelman Library and via telephone, and online via GW’s free WebEx service. 

Detailed services and hours for the Gelman Library and the Eckles Library are available online. The Division of Operation and the Provost’s office released a comprehensive listing of fall building hours in September.

Students, faculty and staff also can access assistance by phone, email, text or the Ask Us Desk.

The VSTC Library will continue to provide access to visitors and members of Washington Research Library Consortium during regular staffed hours. Nonprofit organizations and individuals looking for resources through the Funding Information Network can also visit the VSTC library during staffed hours.
