North American History

For a century and a half the Library has collected the history of the U.S. and Canada, including political and military affairs, multicultural history, women's history, religion, folklore, anthropology, architecture, labor history, genealogy and more. Generally speaking, it has not collected the history of American literature, art, sciences, or business in much, if any, depth, nor does it collect materials that are international or inter-disciplinary in scope because those areas are collected by University of Wisconsin--Madison libraries.

To discover if the library owns a particular title, search the Library Catalog (formerly MadCat.) For more information, contact the Library staff by email at or call us at 608-264-6535.
