The Walters Digital Library is now being housed on a new server. This has caused some issues with accessing WDL with Internet Explorer, which we are aware of and are working on. For the time being, please use Firefox, Chrome, Safari (on Mac) or Microsoft Edge as your web browser when using WDL. As soon as the issues with Internet Explorer are addressed, we will let you know. Thank you for your patience, and thank you for being members of the Digital Library.

*** ATTENTION ***

There have been inquiries about information that has been released by the KCC that is not available on WDL. Please understand that we do not receive the files directly from the KCC; rather, they are processed by the Survey first to put them in a format that our database can display. Those files are then placed in a "pool" of logs for us to link to their appropriate APIs. We cannot upload what we haven't received, but as soon as we do receive them they are linked and made available to you.

We are constantly endeavoring to expedite and streamline this process, but know that as soon as we get the data, you get the data. Thank you for your patience.
