Download the new O'Reilly mobile app in iTunes or Google Play

WMU's subscription to Books 24x7 content has migrated to the Skillport platform. This new platform contains all the books and videos available to WMU users on the Books 24x7 platform. Skillport has new features, such as the ability to create a learning plan, set language preferences, and download chapters in Kindle, epub, or pdf format. There is also a free app available in the iTunes and Google Play stores.

WMU is running both Skillport and the Books 24x7 platforms concurrently until March 15, 2019, when the Books 24x7 platform will be turned off. Links will not redirect, so you are encouraged to change any links in content management systems from the Books 24x7 platform to Skillport prior to March 15, 2019.

Please send a message to if you need help creating links to content on the Skillport platform.
