UW Book Madness 2015


Click to see our 2015 VIP Bracketologists!

Welcome to the 2015 UW-Madison Libraries’ Book Madness! Each year, our librarians select 64 books and pit them against each other in a bracket breakout. To win their round, and the title, these books need you to vote who will be crowned champion this year.

Students, campus staff, faculty, library staff, and community members can fill out and submit brackets ahead of time. Winners with the bracket that most closely guesses the outcomes of the book match-ups will win a gift card to the University Bookstore.

First, Fill out your own bracket!

  • Fill out a bracket! The most accurate bracket wins a gift card to the University Bookstore. (Trouble printing? Click here…)
  • Brackets can be picked up at participating libraries starting Wednesday March 4, or downloaded and printed, but they must be turned in at a participating location!
  • Brackets must be turned in by March 17.
  • Complete rules here.
  • Drop off your completed brackets at any participating location, including Astronomy, Business, College, Ebling, Geography, Geology, Memorial, MERIT, Physics, Steenbock, Water Resources and Wendt. You can also drop off at the University Bookstore or the Alicia Ashman, Central, Monroe Street, Meadowridge or Pinney Madison Public Libraries.

Then, Vote for your favorite books!

Starting March 19, return here to vote for which book in each pairing advances in the tournament.

Finally, Win a prize!

The bracket turned in that scores highest against the actually results will win a gift card provided by The University Bookstore.
