Here's what you need to know before visiting the University Libraries. We also provide support online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff through our online services.

Some library systems will be offline from June 24th until June 29th for software upgrades. Physical materials can be searched at https://www.gvsu.edu/library/findbooks. Requesting, and checking out physical materials will not be available at that time, although articles, e-books, e-journals, and streaming videos will continue to be available. Learn more about the Library Services Platform Migration.
