New WMU Archives To Open In October

Here's a photo taken nearly two weeks ago to show you the progress of Western Michigan University's new Zhang Legacy Collections Center (ZLCC), the future home of the WMU Archives and Regional History Collections.

At this point they are expecting to open the ZLCC in mid-October. [1]  Until then you should be aware of some changes in their hours.  Through July 31st, they will be open Tues-Fri 9-4 and Mondays by appointment only. [1]  Beginning August 1st, no walk-in research will be possible until the new building opens, but you can still access some materials by appointment (call (269) 387-8490). [1]  As you might anticipate, some collections will probably be unavailable during the move so try to get your research trip in before the end of July.
