The goal is to eventually record most books written or edited by Western Michigan University faculty, staff and students. We will start by entering the most recent publications first and work our way back to older books. There is a WMU Authors section in Waldo Library, where most of these books can be found. Most are available with another copy in the general stacks of Waldo or in the branch libraries.
With a few exceptions, we do not have the rights to put the full text of the book online, so there will be a link to a place where you can purchase the book.
If you are a WMU faculty or staff member and have a book you would like to include in this list, please contact email@example.com
