The Seeking Michigan website is part of a collaboration between the Library of Michigan and Archives of Michigan, and its aim is to provide "access to unique historical information that promotes Michigan's cultural heritage." Some of the historical information visitors will find on the site includes images, documents, oral histories, maps, films, and artifacts. The "Look" section of the website is a blog where various people author articles about a story or item they have chosen from the site, for example Randy Riley of the Library of Michigan writes about Elmore Leonard, often called "The Dickens of Detroit" by his fans. Visitors who are Detroit Red Wings fans will appreciate the article about their last game at Olympia Stadium, authored by Matt Zarb of the Michigan Historical Museum. Lastly, visiting educators will find that the "Teach" link has a short video about the "History of the Photograph", which is the introduction to a lesson for young people on how to analyze the many historic photographs on the Seeking Michigan website. The link to the lesson is at the end of the video.
