Reading Lists Across Campus

Enrique's Journey isn't the only great book being read on UW Madison's campus. Many departments, groups, and libraries have put together reading lists for students, faculty, and staff. Whether you're doing research on a certain topic or just looking for a summer read before classes start up, these are a great place to look!

Students at the Center for Culture, History, and the Environment have put together book lists by topic, such as "Food and Nature" and "Intellectual and Cultural History." View the list here, organized by department.

UW's Graaskamp Center for Real Estate has a Reading For Life series of suggested books for students. You can read posts on the topic in the department blog.
Campus libraries often have book lists ordered by subject, making it easy to find books on your area of interest. Here's a few libraries with some great specialized book lists.

Many libraries feature their new books. Check out the Geology Library's new acquisitions here.

The Open Book Cafe in College Library holds a great collection of books, DVDs, and more, designed for students' extracurricular reading. Click here to visit their website.

Whether you're interested in fishing, water quality, frogs, or conservation, Wisconsin's Water Library has lists for numerous water-related topics. See them all here!

The Cooperative Children's Book Center features a number of lists of different kinds of children's books, including "50 Multicultural Books Every Child Should Know."

Looking for something else? Ask one of UW's librarians for a suggestion, or leave us a comment!

I believe the education of young people is not complete until that have a good understanding of real property and how the real estate industry provides an avenue for them to become invested in the one asset that has the best chance of enduring. Good job UW.
