University of Texas Libraries
Celebrating the Life

We invite you to help us build the University of Texas Library collection!

In the next year, the University of Texas Libraries will add more than 100,000 volumes to its collection, which will support the learning, research and knowledge of our 50,000 students and more than 3,000 faculty and researchers.

Your involvement will help improve the UT experience for our students; provide needed resources for our faculty; and impact research that will change the world.

It’s easy…by selecting one or more items from the list below and making a contribution that will purchase the item(s) of your choice. In recognition of your passion for providing resources for our students and faculty, we will list your name or name you designate (for honorees or memorials) in the online catalogue record for the item you purchased.

The wish list below includes items that have been identified by our librarians and faculty as important resources needed for instruction and research. This list is by no means everything that faculty have requested.

We hope that you take a few moments to review the list and find an item that excites you or one that you feel UT should have. The list can be sorted so that you can find something of interest conveniently.

Thank you for contributing to the future of our University!

If you have questions about a specific item or subject area, please call Gregory Perrin, assistant director for development at 512-495-4349 or email at perring@austin.utexas.edu.

  • Desire, Drink and Death in English Folk & Vernacular Song, 1600-1900: 2008

    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.

    A monumental 400 page look at the deadpan, strange and endlessly mesmerizing body of work White has created in his 30 plus year career as a fine artist, illustrator, and director. This monograph first takes an intimate look at White's unpublished sketchbooks, drawings, and paintings during his tenure as co-creator of Pee Wee's Playhouse, music video director, and as art director for dozens of influential children's programs.

    Important art book that should be added to the Fine Arts Library collection.

  • Whole Person Healthcare, v.1-3: 2007

    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.

  • The Right to Food and the TRIPS Agreement: With a Particular Emphasis on Developing Countries' Measures for Food Production and Distribution: 2007

    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.
