About the University of Texas Libraries Collections

Dr. E. J. Lund, the first director of the Marine Science Institute, collected materials in marine science, which formed the basis of the institute's library, during 1946-47. With nearly 50,000 volumes in foreign and domestic titles, the library's collection currently supports the curriculum of the Department of Marine Science in the College of Natural Sciences. The library also serves the research unit of the University of Texas Marine Science Institute in Port Aransas, Texas.
