GW Libraries Staff Information

The goal of this site is to provide an online, extensible staff resource that contains reliable, up to date, authoritative documentation and forms to assist Libraries staff in conducting their day to day activities. This resource is intended to replace much of the routine administrative content currently on the K: drive. It is also intended to replace the multitude of local version of forms and other materials that staff members have downloaded to their own computers as convenience copies.

We hope you find this a useful tool and one that makes your worklife easier. These pages are just scaffolding on which to place additional resources that staff indicate they need.

To let the GWLAI web team know if new resources should be added, email laiweb@gwu.edu.
