New Library Search Tool Debuts May 19

The WMU Library website will be changing on Tuesday, May 19, 2015. The new website will include the new Library Search tool, along with updated and revised links. This new library system will replace the previous Books+, PowerSearch and Classic Catalog search tools. In addition, it will take the place of the previous Journals button on the Library homepage. Holds and recall requests are temporarily suspended while this transition takes place.

Access to specific databases (e.g. JSTOR, Scopus) will not be affected. Borrowing periods for library materials and interlibrary loan services will remain the same as well. 

Library staff is available to provide help and individual support both before and after the switch over. For more information, please contact the Ask-a-Librarian service at or call the University Libraries Reference Desk at: (269) 387-5178.
