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.

  • Medieval Travel Writing:

    This project provides direct access to a widely scattered collection of original medieval manuscripts that describe travel - real and imaginary - in the Middle Ages. The project combines: multiple manuscript sources detailing the journeys of famous travelers from Prester John and Marco Polo to Sir John Mandeville and John Capgrave; translations and supporting materials (all of which are fully searchable); maps showing the routes of the travelers; and Introductory essays by leading scholars.

    These sources tell us much about the attitudes and preconceptions of people across Europe in the medieval period, shedding light on issues of race, economics, trade, militarism, politics, literature and science. They will be welcomed by scholars in both literature and history as well as by French and German studies departments.

  • 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.

  • Macromolecular engineering : precise synthesis, materials properties, applications (Four Volume Set - Hardcover): 2007

    The book provides a state of the art description of the synthetic tools to precisely control various aspects of macromolecular structure including chain composition, microstructure, functionality and topology as well as modern characterization techniques at molecular and macroscopic level for various properties of well-defined (co)polymers in solution, bulk and at surfaces. The book addresses also the correlation of molecular structure with macroscopic properties additionally affected by processing. Finally, some emerging applications for the (co)polymers are highlighted.

    Macromolecules are essential for life and constitute the basics for molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics and food chemistry. They are also the constituents of polymers that find applications as plastics, fibers, elastomers, coatings, and adhesives in the electrical and optical industries, as well as in many other fields. Macromolecular engineering includes the design and preparation of well-defined macromolecules, together with their precise characterization at various stages of synthesis and processing so a to optimize their macroscopic properties for specific functions and applications. This is a state-of-the-art description of the synthetic tools used to precisely control various aspects of macromolecular structure, as well as modern characterization techniques at molecular and macroscopic level for various properties of well-defined (co)polymers in solution, bulk and at surfaces.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Encyclopedia of Stress, v.1-4: 2007

    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. Nursing faculty have requested access for the latest edition online.
