We're open in person and online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff. Here's what you need to know to have a safe and successful visit. We continue to provide support online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff through our online services.

Due to the Staying in Place order, the University Libraries is open for individual study only. No gatherings or group activities are allowed. Strict adherence to preventive measures is required, including the wearing of face coverings in the library at all times. 

Online and Hybrid Course Support for Faculty

Liaison Librarians

Every department has a liaison librarian available to support all instruction, whether in-class or online. Contact your librarian as early in the semester as possible to talk about the ways they can work with you and your students.
