New 24-hour Study for Graduate Students in the GRC

The George Washington University - Sat, 03/26/2016 - 22:06
March 28, 2016

The Global Resources Center (GRC) is now available to graduate students for late night study. Located on Gelman's 7th floor, the GRC remains open to all during staffed hours, but is now available 24-hours to graduate students via GWorld tap access. The GRC features multiple tables and chairs as well as public computers and a Colonial Printer.

The need for additional graduate student space is among our most often heard feedback. The changes needed to make this possible have been paid for by the voluntary library gift. The GW Libraries is committed to utilizing funds from the voluntary library gift to directly enhance the student experience. The voluntary library gift has recently been used to purchase and reupholster furniture, purchase 3-D printers, fund upgrades to the graduate student reading room (501), and fund student employees. We appreciate everyone who supports the libraries through the voluntary library gift.
