There are many resources available to students and faculty at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in support of scholarship in the medieval area.

Libraries and Archives 
Foremost among these resources are access to the university’s impressive Memorial Library, including its Special Collections, whose holdings include manuscripts and early modern print books.

The Chazen Museum of Art houses not only collections of early art (including devotional objects, carvings, paintings, and sculpture) but also the Kohler Art Library, which contains extensive holdings in art history and visual culture.

Faculty and students also have access to the collections of both the Newberry Library in Chicago and the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC through our membership in the Newberry Library Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Interested faculty and graduate students desiring funding for research purposes or to attend a seminar or other event at either of these institutions should contact our university’s Consortium Representative (Thomas Dale, with details of the request for funding.
