Welcome to Giving

Contributions to our libraries help to maintain and grow the vast resources our faculty and students rely on for their research and educational endeavors. With this in mind, we ask you to please support the Libraries.

Financial support from our alumni and friends serves a critical role in our work to support the needs of UW-Madison. Libraries provide transformative, collaborative, and inspirational spaces for educational discoveries to flourish.  We ask you to help us ensure UW-Madison Libraries remain a leader in cultivating resources for our community and beyond.

Your help has never been more important.

Message from the Vice Provost

vangemert Without great libraries, there are no great universities.
This phrase really reflects my passion for the UW-Madison Libraries, and how important I know them to be to the University of Wisconsin. With that in mind, I offer my sincere thanks to you for your support of the UW–Madison Libraries. As we continue to build upon our core vision that the Libraries are essential partners in the creative exploration, intellectual growth, and scholarly pursuits of the University, we are strategically using your donations to add new spaces, resources, and technology to a library system that draws more than 3 million visitors each year—ensuring that the Libraries are the place on campus for inter-disciplinary teaching, research, and learning—a place to exchange and create new ideas with innovative tools and resources.Your support helps to ensure that the UW–Madison Libraries remain one of the top research library systems in North America.  Thank you!Ed Van Gemert
Vice Provost for Libraries
