Find Something FUN to Read at the Library

UT Libraries launches new leisure reading collection

Looking for something FUN to read? Look no further than the UT Libraries. With romantic love stories, popular prizewinners, gripping mysteries and edge-of-your seat thrillers, the libraries new leisure reading collection is the perfect answer to that “what to read?” question.

“Students often ask us where books for fun, recreational reading are located. This collection is a response to that,” Teresa Berry, science librarian and leisure reading collection curator, said.

The collection is located on the first floor of Hodges Library in the Jack E. Reese Galleria near the Documents and Microforms room. There are three hundred volumes of recently published and bestselling fiction and nonfiction; authors include Danielle Steele, Scott Turow, Malcom Gladwell, and Anna Quindlen. The collection is leased from MacNaughton Books, which provides many circulation-ready materials for public libraries. New titles will be added to the collection each month as older titles cycle out. Many popular titles are also included in the UT Libraries’ permanent collections.

Books from the leisure reading collection are listed in the online catalog. The books are available for 28-day checkout and can be delivered to faculty with Library Express. This is the pilot phase of the project, and continuation depends on funding. For more information, click here to visit the Leisure Reading Collection web site.

New Create Change website on Open Access

The Create Change website from SPARC has a new version.

From the first page:

“Get more from your academic research

Welcome to the new version of the Create Change Web site, launched June 22, 2006.

In the age of the Internet, the ways you share and use academic research results are changing — rapidly, fundamentally, irreversibly. There’s great potential in change. After all, faster and wider sharing of journal articles, research data, simulations, syntheses, analyses, and other findings fuels the advance of knowledge. It’s a two-way street — sharing research benefits you and others. But will the promise of digital scholarship be fully realized? How will yesterday’s norms adapt to tomorrow’s possibilities?

This website will help you understand the changing landscape and how it affects you and your research. It also offers practical ways to look out for your own interests as a researcher.

A scholarly revolution is underway. It enables you to get a greater return from your research. All you have to do is share it.”
