We are grateful to Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota for providing a space for us to house our collection in their Library Technology Center.  Our collection is found on their lower level. See Map.
You may also search the GGS Library Collection using Concordia Library’s online catalog CLICsearch. After you start typing your terms in the search box, select “CLIC Catalog” from the drop down menu since we do not have access to the electronic resources from Concordia
