In accordance with UW-2068 Literature Distribution, the Wisconsin Union recognizes its obligation to accommodate the distribution of free newspapers and magazines dropped off and available free of charge at Union facilities. This policy states the time, place, and manner of the distribution of these materials.
Free newspapers, magazines, periodicals, newsletters, and like matter which contain news, stories, and other literary articles.
To ensure safe and orderly distribution, general distribution of free publications is allowed only in locations and times specified by the Assistant Director-Facilities.
Free publications may only be distributed in racks supplied by the Union.
The Wisconsin Union will assign the most visible rack spaces, and label the spaces accordingly. UW–Madison daily campus newspapers (i.e., The Badger Herald and The Daily Cardinal) are given higher priority for rack space assignment. The remaining highly visible rack spaces and the number of rack spaces will be allotted to the publications with the highest circulation in Wisconsin Union buildings. Circulation will be reviewed annually. Rack spaces not assigned by the Wisconsin Union will be first come, first served.
Dated, free publications may be dropped off in quantities reasonable for distribution from that date until the succeeding issue with a 30-day maximum. Upon delivery of the new issue, all remaining copies of the old/previous issue are to be removed by the supplier.
Undated, free publications may be dropped off in quantities suitable for 7-day distribution. Any excess material remaining after seven days will be recycled by the Union.
Changes and appeals to this policy are approved by the Assistant Director-Facilities.
