Wisconsin Labor History Bibliography

Wisconsin Labor History Society © 2016

Welcome to the Wisconsin Labor History Bibliography, which identifies resources for the study of workers and unions and work in Wisconsin. The bibliography is still in its early stages and we are currently concentrating on compiling information mainly found in books, articles and theses, although some videos and music cassettes have already been included. Descriptive annotations will be provided for as many of the bibliography entries as is possible. The bibliography may be perused in four different ways:

(These are being offered as PDFs now. You’ll need Adobe Reader to open them. To search within a PDF, type in Ctrl+f, to bring up “Search,” and then type in topic, keyword, author or title to locate item.)
