Closure Notice

Seidman House will be closed to research during late May and early June 2021 due to an HVAC replacement project. During that period our collections will not be accessible to researchers or staff, and we will be unable to accommodate research visits or reference requests. Please contact collections@gvsu.edu or rupinskl@gvsu.edu for further information.

Special Collections and University Archives is open by appointment to GVSU community members only.

Request an Appointment Online.

We encourage all researchers to send reference questions to rupinskl@gvsu.edu.
