The Princeton Review recently featured UW–Madison in its 2015 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 379 Colleges.” In addition to several programs at UW–Madison being highlighted by the education services company, the UW–Madison Libraries were ranked the 16th best in the nation. The rankings are based on surveys of 130,000 students attending colleges around the country. Just 15 percent of the nearly 2,500 four-year universities in America are profiled in the review.
The UW–Madison Libraries manage the 11th largest research collection in North America with exceptional access to print and digital materials from our libraries at UW–Madison and around the world. The Libraries are diverse, abundant, and accessible whenever and wherever, thanks to our extensive websites and online resources.
Our other libraries include Law, Ebling Library for the Health Sciences, Engineering (Wendt Commons), and Education. The Wisconsin Historical Society Library & Archives is the North American History library on campus. Special Purpose libraries, which service individual departments and programs, round out the campus libraries.
“We are pleased to see not only UW–Madison as a whole recognized for its stellar programs, but to also have the Libraries placed among the nation’s best,” says Ed Van Gemert, Vice Provost for Libraries and University Librarian. “Our staff works hard to provide the University community with cutting-edge, high quality resources and opportunities.”
UW–Madison received national honors for several other programs for both campus life and academics.
