What to expect

We follow all state mandates and university guidance to keep you safe on campus. Read WMU's current policies related to COVID-19, including badging and mask requirements. Masks are mandatory inside library buildings at this time.

WMU community

In accordance with WMU's safety protocols, all students, faculty and staff must present a green badge in order to enter Waldo Library and the Zhang Legacy Collections Center. At Waldo Library, a Bronco Card is required to enter the building after 8 p.m.


Both Waldo Library and Zhang Legacy Collections Center are now open to the public. Waldo Library is open to the public most days until 8 p.m., while late evening hours are reserved for WMU students and employees only. To keep everyone safe, members of the public will be asked to complete a short health survey before entering the building.

We have also identified computers in a specific area for public use at this time. Check in at the service desk to get your guest login and find out which computer to use.
