Visiting Research Scholars

The Office of the Provost manages a Visiting Research Scholar status for scholars collaborating with GC faculty or otherwise contributing to GC programming or scholarship.

Visiting scholars obtain a GC photo ID for borrowing privileges and a GC network account for off-site access to library resources.
