Great Minds Collection: Home

This guide describes the Great Minds Collection and allows UWW faculty and staff to suggest Great Minds titles or to blog about a favorite Great Minds title.

Great Minds Collection

The Great Minds Collection showcases titles selected by librarians, faculty and staff to represent great thinkers, writers and ideas of the world. Three sets of classics form the core of the collection: Great Books of the Western World, Gateway to the Great Books, and the Harvard Classics.

The collection draws on ancient and contemporary classics and also features books that highlight important concepts in various disciplines. UW-W faculty and staff may make suggestions for titles to add to Great Minds. Or they may wish to contribute an annotation for one of their favorites Great Minds books to be posted on the Andersen Library Blog.
