Select library items will be unavailable beginning March 29 through May while the Maybee Music and Dance and Swain Education libraries' print collections are moved to Waldo Library. Pickup and delivery requests will be briefly unavailable for items affected by the move. Items will be made available again as soon as they are reshelved in Waldo Library.

Check Library Search for alternative online resources or use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services to request a copy from a participating library. Contact the Waldo Library service desk at (269) 387-5059 with questions about an item's availability or assistance in placing an ILL request.

The upcoming moves are necessary to consolidate library collections after the Maybee Music and Dance Library's permanent closure in fall 2020 and the temporary closure of the Swain Education Library due to reduced COVID-19 operations. University Libraries is in the process of reimagining the Swain Library to meet emerging WMU student and faculty needs. The Libraries will share future plans for the Swain facility over the summer.
