Strong academic libraries keep us all in a better state!

Libraries on college and university campuses are key to student achievement and research excellence:

  • Students and researchers use the library to find books and journal articles, use electronic resources, consult with librarians, conduct research, write papers, and study.
  • Academic libraries support the social aspect of learning by providing space where students can meet to work on shared projects, and discuss their classes.
  • Academic libraries connect all state residents with a world of knowledge. On campus, you can access traditional materials and archives, as well as extensive online resources.

More About Wisconsin's Academic Libraries

The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries.
