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 Campaign for Wisconsin Libraries could be one of the most important things the library community has ever done. We live in a knowledge-based economy, where life-long learning is mandatory. Public, academic, special, and school libraries are essential institutions and should not be compromised. Yet these valuable institutions are in danger. We are seeing funding cuts, service and staffing cuts, aging collections, and deteriorating physical infrastructure as a growing challenge that must be addressed. A campaign for library advocacy throughout the state of Wisconsin is sorely needed. Please join our effort to give libraries this much needed voice.
