Library Resources

 

The Hekman Library of Calvin Colleges houses a large collection of resources you may access for research during your time in the seminar, including one of the largest collections of Western American studies material in Michigan through the Mellema Program in Western American Studies. In addition to recent scholarship on the American West, this collection includes a significant amount of work on the Canadian West and North. It also includes runs of major journals that focus on the West, notably the Western History Quarterly, Pacific Historical Review, Journal of the West, and Montana: Magazine of Western History.
