GW Libraries and Academic Innovation
GW Libraries and Academic Innovation (GWLAI) enriches the academic experience of scholars and
spurs innovation at GW through excellence in library services and research collections, support for teaching and learning, and targeted integration of the latest online and classroom technologies.
Vast amounts of information are available to students, faculty, and researchers from almost any location, opening the way for streamlined scholarship and providing powerful tools for understanding and solving the complex problems of our time.

GWLAI equips students with the tools and techniques they need to be successful. To fully serve students, we must create the best possible environment for learning and research. Library technology and resources—including expert librarians who help patrons navigate through digital and analog worlds and serve as catalysts for uncovering knowledge—are essential to the academic process.
Our Special Collections stand as the crown jewel of GWLAI, housing rare and unique materials that allow our users to conduct original research that can be done nowhere else. These collections provide our users with unique opportunities and raise the prestige of GW as a research institution.
Our libraries must present a cutting-edge, modern learning environment. We aim to become the state-of-the-art information center our students, faculty, and researchers need to pursue knowledge and collaborate effectively. Modernizing the function and aesthetics of GWLAI online and at our physical locations will elevate us to the standards of other top academic research institutions.
