“Not Secure” Internet Message 

Beginning in mid-October Google Chrome will start displaying a “Not Secure” message on any webpage where information can be entered in any kind of form using HTTP instead of the encrypted HTTPS protocol. Library Search will be affected on the current home page and in Advanced search.

WMU Libraries plans to default to the new secure version of Library Search by mid-December. Try the new secure Library Search or continue to use the classic version.

Collage of images that are part of the digital collections

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.
