Libraries launch online wish list

texlibris_wishlistMaking a wish is easy, but getting it fulfilled takes…well it takes you!

The University of Texas Libraries invites you to help us build our library collection by picking an item on our online wish list.

I talk with people all the time about supporting our library. Many of them feel that libraries are very important, but they never think to put their money where their passion is. And when they do they feel that their $150, $400 or $ 1,000 is not really enough to make a difference in the lives of our students and faculty.

The truth is that $150 does make a difference. In the next year, the University of Texas Libraries will add more than 100,000 books 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 $150, $400 or $1,000 to purchase of a book or online database from our wish list will help improve the academic experience for our students; provide needed resources for our faculty; and impact research that will change the world.

Our wish list includes items that have been identified by our librarians and faculty as important resources needed for instruction and research. The list is by no means everything that faculty has requested.

I hope you take a few moments to review the list and find an item that excites you or one that you feel UT should have. You may find something that a friend or family member is interested in, buy it in their name as a gift or memorial.

You can make a difference in the lives of our students by building the intellectual resources needed for success. Success starts @ the Libraries!
