March Madness Library Resource Guide

Every spring the U.S. engages in what has become a new national pastime.  We check in with Selection Sunday, fill out our brackets carefully, and watch with bated breath to see if our favorite team wins the Big Dance.

Since 1939, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has held a single-elimination tournament to determine the champion of Men’s Division I Basketball.  This library resource guide created by Librarians Joyce Garczynski and Laksamee Putnam will take you behind the scenes of March Madness to see the highlights, big bucks, and fouls that make up college basketball. Enjoy and good luck!
