Library Development Review

The annual Library Development Review highlights our collections, honors our Library Society, and celebrates extraordinary gifts to the University of Tennessee Libraries.

The current issue has a distinct musical theme. Read the 2017-2018 Library Development Review to learn about the 150-year history of the Pride of the Southland marching band; the newly-digitized David Van Vactor Music Collection; an event celebrating 50 years of singing “Rocky Top” at UT games; and our new program, Boundless: Artists in the Archives. The UT Libraries invites musicians and other artists to explore treasures preserved in our archives and to translate what they discover into the language of their art. Tucked into this issue is a 45 RPM recording of two songs inspired by the Wilma Dykeman and James R. Stokely Jr. Papers—written and performed by the musical duo Count This Penny.
