Library services and resources for graduates of WMU

Information assistance

Ask a Librarian: WMU librarians can answer questions and assist you in finding information. Use the Ask a Librarian service to contact us by instant message (IM), e-mail, or phone.

Off-campus access to library resources

  • On-site use only of WMU electronic resources: Unfortunately most publisher license agreements restrict online journals, e-books, databases and other electronic resources to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff employees and on-site users only. Remote access to WMU electronic resources expires when your Bronco Net ID expires, 180 days after you leave the University.
  • On-site access at other institutions: Most state-supported college and university libraries provide walk-in onsite access to their materials. If you live near a state institution find out what is available to you through them.
  • Interlibrary loan services: WMU Libraries only provide interlibrary loan service to currently enrolled students, and faculty and staff employees. However, many libraries (including public libraries) offer interlibrary loan services to their members. Ask at your local library.
  • Alumni who live within the state of Michigan may be eligible to request delivery of physical items from WMU libraries to your local public library, if your local library participates in the MelCat statewide delivery system.
