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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Southern Architect and Building News scanning project:

    Southern Architect and Building News is one of the oldest regional architectural journals in the country. The Architecture & Planning Library has the most complete run including many unique issues, not available at any other library. Students and scholars beyond architecture are interested in this valuable resource including those in American Studies, Southern history, advertising and technology.

    Because of its rarity, the journal has yet to be indexed, making it inaccessible short of browsing page by page. Although our holdings are remarkable, we do not have a full run of publication. Scanning our holdings and making them available is the first step in providing world-wide access for scholarship. It also provides opportunity for indexing by the Avery Index and for further collaboration with other libraries to fill in our gaps in the journal's publishing run.

  • 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.
