About this Guide

Welcome! UW-Madison Libraries are your resource partners throughout the life cycle of research, teaching, and learning. To that end, our librarians are available to work with you as you contribute to the scholarship of your discipline and engage with our wider community. 

This guide, developed in cooperation with Extension colleagues from the Positive Youth Development Institute, provides links to resources of professional research interest from among the collections and services of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries and more. 

Additional library support information can be reviewed at the Extension blog site, "UW-Madison Library Services" (
