The Encyclopedia is currently undergoing a process by which content is being transferred to more appropriate platforms, and the Encyclopedia itself will no longer be maintained.

Historical essays and timelines created by GW faculty and archives staff have been moved to a new site

Information about GW Foggy Bottom campus buildings that was previously found in the Encyclopedia was largely taken from the 1999 document, "Reconnaissance-Level Architectural Survey of Properties in Foggy Bottom, Washington, D.C." That report has now been scanned in its entirety and is available online.
