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.

  • African American Historical Serials Collection:

    Important collection of African American periodicals which are not generally available. Titles published in Texas are included in this online collection.

    This collection would greatly strenghten our holdings of African American periodicals. This information is in great demand at the University and would help to support the new doctoral program in African and African Diaspora Studies.

  • 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.

  • Wayne White: Maybe Now Ill Get The Respect I So Richly Deserve: 2009

    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.

  • Masterpieces of Chinese Painting from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston: Tang Through Yuan Dynasties: 1996

    This stunning oversized book is printed in two hardcover volumes, gathered in a linen-covered clamshell box and protected by a durable outer case. The first volume discusses 132 masterworks of Chinese painting on silk or paper. The second volume presents the paintings themselves, reproduced in full color and, in most cases, actual size. This book, with its numerous gatefold spreads and eight-color printing, on paper specially developed for this title, is one of the most breathtaking works ever published.

    This book, a work of art in its own right, presents the glory of Chinese painting from the 7th to 14th century. It gives an authoritative account of the history, meaning, and cultural significance of the world's oldest continuous painting tradition.

  • Indian economic and social history review: 1964-1999

    This is the foremost journal devoted to the study of the social and economic history of India, and South Asia more generally. The journal publishes articles with a wider coverage, referring to other Asian countries but of interest to those working on Indian history. Its articles cover India's South Asian neighbors so as to provide a comparative perspective. Issues are periodically organized around a specific theme as a special number. The journal's principal features are research articles, substantial review articles and bibliographic surveys, which also cover material available in Indian languages, as a special feature.

    This is a key journal for Indian social science.

  • Comprehensive Glycoscience: From Chemistry to Systems Biology: 2007

    Carbohydrates are an important part of life and are present in bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeast, plants, animals and humans. The rapid expansion of chemistry and glycobiology over the last few years has provided many new, imaginative and efficient techniques, which provide further insight into the structures and biological interactions of carbohydrates and glycostructures. This work has a very broad scope and will appeal to a wide audience as it explores the interactions between biology, chemistry and molecular biology towards understanding, synthesizing and developing glycoproteins, glycolipids, proteoglyans and polysaccharides, which are important molecules in nature for controlling health and disease and food and feed.

    This resource includes extensive coverage of the rapidly expanding field of glycoscience, the study of carbohydrates and carbohydrate-containing substances.
