Social Sciences Team

The University of Texas has an esteemed history of research and teaching in the social sciences, and the UT Libraries’ Social Sciences Subject Team strives to develop collections that both support current research and preserve the historical record of social science disciplines.

The collections are broad in scope, deep in areas of highest-interest, demonstrate the interdisciplinarity of social science research, and respond to the ever evolving need of scholars on our campus.

Many social science subjects are focused primarily on English-language materials; though, with support of from the Global Studies Subject Team, foreign language materials in some social science subjects are more extensive. Materials from and about all time periods and geographic areas of the world are collected (see individual collection policies for specific emphasis). All formats (print, electronic, audio/visual) are pursued and supported (again, emphasis varies by individual subjects).
