The University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries Publications collection includes several iterations of Friends of the Library publications dating back to the 1940s as well as the current magazine of the UW-Madison Libraries, Libraries, which is published annually in the spring and is distributed across the country. The magazine highlights people, programs and collections of the UW-Madison Libraries, its role in the life of a great university, and the significant support of Friends and donors.

The Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Library is one of the oldest university library friends groups in the nation. In the half-century since its formation during the university’s centennial, the organization has supported the continuing excellence of a great research library system. Friends News is published three times a year — in June, September and December. The newsletter, distributed locally, focuses on recent library acquisitions and upcoming Friends events at the UW-Madison Library. Current issues can be viewed here.
