Libraries put WMU on Digital Map

Eighteen unique WMU-held historical collections are now part of a national digital library database completing a large library metadata project. Images from WMU Libraries digital collections have been harvested into the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), a major online national library initiative. This makes our local digital collections more widely available across the US and globally. Topics range from beer and food to Civil War diaries to Medieval Manuscripts and midcentury - midwest photos.

Many Improvements at Waldo

University Libraries are working to improve the Waldo Library user experience in multiple ways. Starting in August 2017 there will be one service desk located in the atrium (first floor entrance) of Waldo Library. A large area of the first floor in Waldo has been designed with modern, movable furniture to create more flexible study and work spaces. Finally, the maps collection is being relocated at the end of the month to the second floor and will be accessible whenever the library is open.
