Materials Loan

The Library collection, supporting the School of Education's Teacher Certification Programs, includes scholarly and PreK-12 print, media, and electronic information sources. The collection is developed in collaboration with the Libraries of the UW-Madison and of the UW System. New materials suggestions for the MERIT Library are welcome and encouraged in order to insure our materials are aligned with changing curriculum needs.

Items in this collection are submitted by instructors for students currently enrolled in UW-Madison and have restricted circulation periods.
