New Web site puts faculty expertise online

July 13, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- A new Web site has made it easier for the media and others to find WMU experts who can address topics varying from acoustics to zebrafish.

The WMU Experts Guide Web site, <www.experts.wmich.edu>, is an electronic version of the University's Experts Guide, a publication featuring the names, credentials and contact information for more than 400 WMU faculty and staff willing to address a variety of topical issues. The Web site provides users with a keyword-searchable method to access the information in the guide, which was compiled by the Office of University Relations and printed last fall.

In addition, the WMU Experts Guide Web site also allows WMU faculty and staff members to update or submit information for the Experts Guide online.
