Institutional Repository

The Macdonald-Kelce Library now has a new Institutional Repository (IR) online! The UT IR mission is to collect, preserve, and distribute the intellectual output of the UT community. Many universities have an IR in order to store and preserve materials such as theses, dissertations, university publications, faculty papers, conference proceedings, and college events, and make them accessible to the world.

What you’ll find now in the IR is a collection of past MFA Theses (most are campus-access restricted), and materials from a conference hosted here at UT.

In the future the Library hopes to collect more scholarship created by you, whether you are a student, faculty, or staff. Keep up with the progress of the IR by visiting the library’s homepage at utopia.ut.edu, and reading this blog!

Learn more about the IR on our guide: http://libguides.utopia.ut.edu/thesis

The Global Jukebox

The Global Jukebox is a site based on the audio archive of Alan Lomax, famed ethnomusicologist who collected traditional folk music of cultures around the world. There are many ways to browse: by map, by culture, or by “journeys” where you can track your personal heritage musically and make a family tree of songs.

About the site: “The Global Jukebox presents traditions that are linked to the roots of the world’s peoples. Alan Lomax called it a “democratic cultural system”. The visitor may explore collections of music, dance, and speech from almost every corner of the globe, recorded by hundreds of pioneering ethnographers at times when mass communications were less pervasive than now.

The Global Jukebox explores connections between families of expressive style. One can travel the world of song, dance and language through the Wheel Chart and the Map. Thousands of examples of the world’s music, dance and other expressive behavior will now become available. The Global Jukebox is presented as a free, non-commercial, educational place for everybody, students, educators, scholars, scientists, musicians, dancers, linguists, artists and music fans to explore expressive patterns in their cultural-geographic and diasporic settings and alongside other people’s. By inviting familiarity with many kinds of vocalizing, musicking, moving, and talking, we hope to advance cultural equity and to reconnect people and communities with their creative heritage.”

Lost your notebook? Check the Library’s Lost & Found

The busy time of the semester is upon us! If you’re anything like us here at the library, you may find yourself a bit scatterbrained and rushed – a good recipe for misplacing your belongings. If you happen to leave your water bottle, hoodie, or any other personal item in the library, check to see if someone turned it in at our lost and found, located at the Circulation Desk.

Remember, don’t leave any valuables unattended, even when the library seems empty. You always have the option to rent out a locker if you are leaving to get a coffee or go out for lunch. Lockers are available for all day rentals, and are located near the bathrooms. Inquire at Circulation for a locker.
