The University of Texas Libraries has a solid collection on all the major literary figures of every period and genre of Spanish literature, including bibliographical and bio-bibliographical reference materials.
The emphasis of collection development for Spanish and Portuguese literature has reflected the scholarly pursuits of the university community: medieval drama and poetry, including a rich collection of the Cantigas and 16th century plays; Golden Age literature; the picaresque novel and contemporary fiction and poetry; and representative selections in Catalan, Basque and Gallegan literatures.
All literary periods and genres of Portuguese literature are represented in the collection, beginning with the Troubadour poets of the 12th century; but the major strength of the Portuguese collection is the 20th century. Linguistic studies form a strong part of our collection efforts.
The Perry-Castañeda Library also has a well-rounded collection dealing with Spanish history, from medieval times to the present, including historical sources on the Spanish Civil war.
Materials on Spanish and Portuguese language and linguistics are also held by the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center (HRC) and the Benson Latin American Collection.
Our collection includes works in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, and Gallegan languages. It is interdisciplinary, integrating many subject areas other than language and linguistics and sharing many with Latin America, especially through the Approval Plan. Formats include print, e-books, videos, CD-ROMS, DVDs and very selectively, maps.
The geographic area covered by this collection includes Spain, Portugal, Azores, Balearic Islands, and very limitedly: Philippines, Angola, East Timor, Macau, Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe.
