UW Libraries were well represented at the State Capitol this week during UW Day on Thursday April 4th. UW-Madison, UW Extension and UW Colleges partnered to present educational displays and interactive exhibits in the capitol rotunda. More than 30 scientific exploration stations offered a fun, hands-on way to see UW research in action. Expert librarians were on hand to answer questions and, of course, share Bucky READ posters with attendees.
