CML - Equipment and Supplies

Due to a software upgrade, non-GVSU affiliates will not be able to borrow Curriculum Materials Library items beginning February 1st, 2021. This is a temporary pause in our borrowing and lending agreement with the Michigan eLibrary (MeLCat). Learn more about this service change.

The Curriculum Materials Library has a variety of equipment and supplies available for our patrons. Stop by the Steelcase Service Desk for help with any questions, machine directions or to pay for materials.
