Max Kade Institute Library Project

Remodeling the new Max Kade Institute Library and Archives and endowment for a librarian/archivist position and for acquisitions.

The Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (MKI) requests a NEH Challenge Grant in the amount of $300,000 to anchor the MKI’s $1,200,000 “Library Project” campaign. Funds will be used to (1) remodel the new and expanded home of the MKI Library and Archives ($700,000) and (2) establish an endowment to support a librarian/archivist position and provide a small acquisition budget ($500,000). NEH support will enable the MKI to (1) create a state-of-the-art research and outreach space for its Library and Archives and expand its collections; (2) ensure financial security for the position of a specialized librarian/archivist; and (3) increase the quantity and quality of its humanities programming. The MKI will be able to present more comprehensive services to students, scholars, and the public and also attract new audiences to American materials written and recorded in languages other than English.
