[+] Desire, Drink and Death in English Folk & Vernacular Song, 1600-1900

This much-needed book provides valuable insights into themes and genres in popular song in the period c. 1600-1900. In particular it is a study of popular ballads as they appeared on printed sheets and as they were recorded by folk song collectors. Vic Gammon displays his interest in the way song articulates aspects of popular mentality and he relates the discourse of the songs to social history. Gammon discusses the themes and narratives that run through genres of song material and how these are repeated and reworked through time. He argues that in spite of important social and economic changes, the period 1600-1850 had a significant cultural consistency and characteristic forms of popular musical and cultural expression. These only changed radically under the impact of industrialization and urbanization in the nineteenth century. The book will appeal to those interested in folk song, historical popular music, ballad literature, popular literature, popular culture, social history, anthropology and sociology.

This is regarded as an essential book on folk and vernacular songs.

[+] Encyclopedia of Stress, v.1-4

The Encyclopedia of Stress covers nearly every conceivable aspect and ramification of stress including a wide range of related topics such as neuroimmune interactions, cytokines, enzymatic disorders, effects on the cardiovascular system, immunity and inflammation, and physical illnesses. Over the last decade, scientists have presented convincing research showing that psychological stress increases vulnerability to disease. They now understand more clearly that stress may be the thread tying together illnesses that were previously believed to be unrelated. Bone loss, increased abdominal fat, and damaged memory cells in the hippocampus have been linked to elevated cortisol levels.

This completely revised edition surveys the vast amount of research generated in the past five years, resulting in a substantial revision with over 30% new material and over 100 new entries. Expanded sections include Animal Studies, Anxiety and Depression, Drugs, Depression, Disasters, and Psychological and Other Therapies. CHOICE Recommended title.

[+] Exhibition enhancement through flat files

The Alexander Architectural Archive participates in many open houses throughout the year to promote collections, welcome new and prospective students, and for campus-wide events such as Explore UT. It also provides custom exhibits prepared for classes where collections are used in teaching and learning, in recruitment of faculty, for events accompanying lectures and development efforts. Using "canned" exhibits in flat file drawers has enabled opportunities for quick display for serendipitous visits of the Dean or Development staff and their VIP guests.

Currently, flat files serve as impromptu exhibit decks. Mylar sheets cover the works as a protective measure but create a distracting glare. The decking consists of materials in folders stored in the drawer and is therefore uneven and limited in size. Due to lack of proper storage options, oversized collection material is located on top of the flat files in an unsightly manner while taking up valuable exhibition space. Access is difficult.

[+] Eye on Dance & The Arts Video

Hailed as "one of the liveliest and most intelligent programs on the arts" by the New York Times, EYE ON DANCE & THE ARTS is the only series of its kind. Launched in 1981, this issue-driven series chronicles over a decade of dance and arts figures. Propelled by lively discussions, each program documents cutting-edge, established, and historical voices. Photographs, videotape excerpts of performances, and demonstrations enhance each segment's visual content.

This series is on DVD now and Fine Arts Library owns only 6 of the 326 half-hour programs. Having the whole series would be ideal. Each half-hour program costs $175.

[+] George F. and Geraldine D. Andrews archival processing

Beginning in the late 1950s, architect George F. Andrews and his wife Geraldine spent over forty years visiting and studying the Yucatán and its Mayan culture and architecture. This collection includes many pages of descriptive data, architectural drawings, and photographs documenting the region (36 linear feet manuscript materials, 1,530 professional view camera images, nearly 6,000 35mm images, over 8,000 color transparencies, approximately 2,300 architectural drawings).

In its current unprocessed state, records remain inaccessible and unprotected from further physical degradation. Archival processing will ensure preservation-sound storage, organization and cataloging. This unprocessed collection has already influenced the discovery of a royal Maya tomb (one of the most significant archeological discoveries in the last decade), and a Fulbright Scholarship based upon research using this collection. Imagine the treasures that await scholars if we were able to fund an effort to fully organize this collection - researchers everywhere would easily know what is in each box filled with valuable manuscripts, photographs and artifacts. Once the collection is processed it can be considered for digitization.

[+] The Right to Food and the TRIPS Agreement: With a Particular Emphasis on Developing Countries' Measures for Food Production and Distribution

A concise analysis of the relationship between patent rights and human rights is given in this book, focusing on the right to food. The UN Sub-Commission on Human Rights identified ‘apparent conflicts’ or ‘actual or potential conflicts’ between human rights and intellectual property rights. The TRIPS Agreement under the WTO Agreement and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights constitute the central treaties in the analysis. Moreover, the book does not find that the two treaties actually conflict. There are, however, concerns regarding the national implementation of the treaties.

The book finds that the right to food and related human rights of the Covenant give important guidance when implementing intellectual property legislation and science policy in general. This title is needed by International Nutrition students and will serve programs in public policy.

[+] Whole Person Healthcare, v.1-3

This work presents a vision of health care for the future that honors the whole person--mind, body, and spirit. The three volumes present the expertise of over 80 contributors and editors. With healthcare services becoming more specialized, fractured, and costly, consumers are demanding more integrative, effective treatments that address the physical, spiritual, and psychological aspects of illness and health. This "whole person" approach to healthcare is increasingly being offered by healthcare professionals and in facilities nationwide. In this unique set of books, experts from across the country, at the forefront in their fields, explain how, how extensively, and why healthcare is changing to incorporate complementary practices, from yoga, meditation and QiGong, to art, music, and dance therapy. Breaking research on this growing field is featured, as are observations by healthcare professionals who say the new approaches are not only helping patients heal, but also helping professionals rediscover their ancient roles as healers of body, mind, and spirit. Examples of training templates, funded programs, and treatment protocols are included. Each of the focused, practical chapters offers a Tool Kit for Change, summarizing major treatment points from a particular perspective. Prevention and lifestyle are addressed, as are cures.

Although other works on holistic health are available, none provides the comprehensive scope of this set. Extensively researched and referenced, it includes helpful figures, tables, and graphs. Highly recommended by CHOICE.

[+] Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology

This book reflects the multidimensional character of chemical biology, focusing on the fundamental science of biological structures and systems.

This is the first major reference at the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine. Chemical biology is a rapidly developing field that uses the principles, tools, and language of chemistry to answer important questions in the life sciences. It has enabled researchers to gather critical information about the molecular biology of the cell and is the fundamental science of drug discovery, playing a key role in the development of novel agents for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Now students and researchers across the range of disciplines that use chemical biology techniques have a single resource that encapsulates what is known in the field. It is an excellent place to begin any chemical biology investigation.
