About the libraries

Each library’s collection supports the programs offered on the campus in which it is located.

Steelcase Library--located in building A of the Pew Campus DeVos Center downtown, this library has books and other materials pertaining to business, criminal justice, education, engineering, hospitality and tourism, legal studies, public and nonprofit administration, social work, and houses the Johnson Collection for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership.  The Curriculum Materials Library is designed for students and faculty in the College of Education and in other departments offering content-area courses of education.

Frey Foundation Learning Commons-- in the Daniel and Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health (DCIH) building in Grand Rapids, you'll find materials for clinical laboratory science, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, occupational safety and health, radiology, and therapeutic recreation.

Mary Idema Pew Library--in Allendale; pretty much everything else.

All three of these libraries provide computers, laptops, printers, photocopiers, and televisions for watching videos.

Seidman House, which houses special collections and university archives, is one of the quietest places on the Allendale campus and ideal for study. It is opened from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

Regardless of subject area, online resources such as databases and electronic books can be accessed anywhere, anytime via the internet with your GVSU user ID and password.
