Librarians at GWLAI work closely with faculty, students, and a broad range of partners on and off campus to achieve GW’s aspirations to excellence as a comprehensive global research university. Librarians support the research life cycle by providing leadership across functions. They are active instruction partners across disciplines; advise on technical strategies for data analysis; steward resources; manage, develop, describe, and digitize collections; illuminate GW’s specialized, unique, and archival content; develop software and teach programming languages; advocate for equal access and affordability in higher education; design curricula; advise on strategies for navigating the scholarly publishing landscape; and partner with other libraries across the region to provide comprehensive access to research materials.
