Nestled on the edge of the ravines running through Grand Valley's Allendale campus, Seidman House contains the University Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives. Our space includes a large quiet study area for students with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the wooded ravines, open work tables, and comfortable seating, as well as the Special Collections and University Archives Reading Room. Visitors to Seidman House can view displays of our rare books and manuscript materials and gain research access to our varied collections.
Special Collections and University Archives collects, preserves, shares, and promotes institutional records, historical manuscripts and documents, rare and unique book collections, photographs, media, art and artifacts in support of the teaching, research, and service mission of Grand Valley State University.
