Trioedd Ynys Prydein: The Triads of the Island of Britain
This is a magisterial volume, an edition, translation and commentary on one of the most important texts of Welsh antiquity, a bardic compendium of all the legendary material of the culture, arranged in "triads" (e.g. "The Three Great Heroes of Arthur's Court").

Collected Works of Michal Kalecki, volumes 6 &7
Michal Kalecki was one of the foremost economist and social thinkers of the twentieth century. It is widely acknowledged that his writings as early as 1933 anticipated all of the essentials of John Maynard Keynes's path breaking General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money. He played a key role in the Keynesian Revolution. Kalecki's work, which covered the economics of "three worlds”, has only been gradually made available in its entirety. His Collected Works, which have been translated into English, provide the definitive view of his work as a whole. Kalecki's analysis is the foundation of both the post-Keynesian economic tradition and of the neo-Marxian political economy. His ideas are vital to economics, political science, and sociology. Having the full collection of his work available would be of the first importance for scholarly research in all of these areas.

Theologisches Wörterbuch zu den Qumrantexten
This is the first major dictionary devoted to the language of the Dead Sea Scrolls, with extended discussions of the use of words in context and the theological ideas associated with them. The Dead Sea Scrolls constitute the largest corpus of ancient Hebrew texts apart from the Hebrew Bible, and, since the Hebrew Bible survives complete only in medieval manuscripts, the Dead Sea Scrolls are the only major corpus of Hebrew texts surviving directly from the ancient period. As such, they are arguably the most important corpus for the study of the early development of the Hebrew language, and for understanding orthographic, grammatical, and lexical changes. This new dictionary will be vitally important for anyone doing research in biblical studies--both Hebrew Bible and New Testament--and early Judaism.
Daniel Falk, Religious Studies
Revue Biblique is the scholarly journal of the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, the foremost biblical research center of the Dominican Order and the center of the French archeological school in Israel.

Treatise on Geomorphology
The massive Treatise on Geomorphology is a set of fourteen volumes, long in production, with authors from many disciplines and from around the world, highlighting the state of the science across the entire field of geomorphology. The science of how the earth’s surface forms operate is of central interest to geographers, geologists, biologists, and several other disciplines. The Treatise is the first comprehensive synthesis of the field in a half century. Whether the topic is the simulation of rivers, the analysis of coastal erosion, or the evolution of mountain landscapes over thousands or millions of years, the Treatise has been developed as a central information source for undergraduates, graduate students, academic researchers, and geomorphic professionals.
Historisch-Kritisches Woerterbuch des Marxismus
The Dictionary is published by the Institut für Kritische Theorie in Berlin. Though it is not to be identified with The Frankfurt Institute of Critical Theory of Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, it models itself on that distinguished predecessor: it takes as its general foundation a very open-ended interpretation of a materialist conception of history, and it is committed to the analysis of all historical dimensions from the socio-economic to the cultural to daily life.
The 2013 Annual of Ad$ Summary
The Ad$ Summary database is a core resource for courses and research around advertising and marketing communications topics. This source provides current data on advertising expenditures for corporations and brands both within the U.S. and for worldwide advertisers. The Ad$ Summary is needed by scholars and researchers in Marketing and Advertising. These data provide a baseline of real-world activities that could not be collected by faculty individually. The database is accepted by both researchers and practitioners as THE source for this type of information.
Gesammelte Schriften. Jubiläumsausgabe
Moses Mendelssohn is one of the most important philosophers and social thinkers of the modern era. His work and this collection is meaningful to scholars across several disciplines, including but not limited to German Studies, Jewish Studies, Religious Studies, Intellectual History, and Social and Political Theory. Researchers working in Jewish thought and the Enlightenment as well as those interested in religious and social thought will find these volumes invaluable and inspiring.
The Peace and Violence of Judaism
This is a first-of-its-kind broad scholarly analysis of the tendencies towards peace and violence found within various sacred texts of Judaism, from the Bible through Medieval commentaries through modern times. It is part of a budding, important scholarly movement that seeks to identify how world religions function as vehicles of peace building and of violence.

How to Build a Habitable Planet: The Story of Earth from the Big Bang to Humankind
How to Build a Habitable Planet has established a legendary reputation as an accessible yet scientifically impeccable introduction to the origin and evolution of Earth, from the Big Bang through the rise of human civilization. This classic account of how our habitable planet was assembled from the stuff of stars introduced readers to planetary, Earth, and climate science by way of a fascinating narrative. Interweaving physics, astronomy, chemistry, geology, and biology, this sweeping account tells Earth's complete story, from the synthesis of chemical elements in stars, to the formation of the Solar System, to the evolution of a habitable climate on Earth, to the origin of life and humankind.

Maps of Rome (Piante di Roma del Centro Storico)
(Società Aerofotografie e Rilevamenti Aerofotogrammetrici) Nistri has been the leading photogrammetric cartographer and surveyor for the city of Rome since 1921. Many architectural surveys and virtually all official cartographic documents published by the Commune di Roma are produced through the auspices of Nistri. These include street maps, archeological digs, census and tax maps among others. The drawings are based on aerial photographs that have been processed using scientific geographic coordinates which make them especially useful as they are compatible with other modern maps (such as Google and Bing maps). These maps record buildings, landscape features, streets, monuments and property boundaries. The drawings also show three-dimensional information via contour elevations and building heights. No other resource has as much information about the morphology of the urban fabric and landscape of contemporary Rome.

Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception
“This reference work will be an essential resource for any scholar that needs to trace the developments of biblical motifs throughout history and their cultural impact. This includes not only scholars of religion—especially of western religious traditions—but most scholars of the humanities such as Classics, Art History, Music History, Comparative Literature, English, History, and Film Studies. Each article in this encyclopedia is written by multiple specialists in their own sub-disciplines. For my own research on ancient Jewish prayer and early Jewish biblical interpretation, this work will help me trace developments well outside my expertise, in Christian and Islamic prayer and interpretation. David Hollenberg, Assistant Professor of Arabic Language and Literature at the University of Oregon, notes that “Access to this important resource would positively impact my research on biblical materials in Islamic literature, a topic which plays a role in my book project on Shiite exegesis.” It will be valuable tool for Deborah Green, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible, in exploring the relation between scriptural interpretation and cultural life among Jews in Late Antiquity, and Stephen Shoemaker, Professor of Christianity, in his research on the reception of early Islamic traditions among Christians. Since the encyclopedia also includes the cultural context of the Bible, it will be valuable for scholars of the Greco-Roman world in exploring the impact of the classical world and literature on the Bible and western religions.”

Market Share Reporter
“Students and faculty at the University of Oregon (and businesses in the greater community) would benefit tremendously from access to the Market Share Reporter in an online format. Students in my BA364 International Business Research class need to access market data for two class projects, a Company/Industry Profile and Screening an International Market. Right now, 3 of my students are pouring over the printed text to find the information they need while others are waiting their turn -- and this is just one class at the University.” (Westerfield)
“This item is very useful for me and my colleague to conduct marketing strategy related research using secondary database. Research in the marketing discipline increasingly demands collecting data from multiple sources. Combining primary data (survey, interview) with secondary market or financial data is useful for generating high quality research paper.” (Ye)
“This item is very important to students in marketing research classes. Students can use the resources to conduct secondary research and gain insights on the research problem they investigate. For example, I have students studying the industry of smartphone, its growth trend, and consumers’ preference. This report provides valuable information.” (Liang)
Jun Ye, Marketing, & Lan Jiang, Marketing
Business Plans Handbook
“This item will be beneficial to my research and teaching. I teach marketing strategy which requires student teams to develop comprehensive marketing plan. This database helps student better understand the structure and content of a sound business plan.” (Ye)
“Learning how to developing marketing plans is a crucial goal for business students. In addition to understanding the elements and concepts of a marketing plan, students need to be exposed to real-life examples. This handbook, with the sample plans and templates, can provide tremendous help for students to get started on their own project.” (Liang)

New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Online
“The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics is an authoritative source for succinct information about economic concepts and ideas. It is a particularly valuable resource for students who are merely trying to get their bearings in an increasingly complex field. It is also valuable for graduate students and faculty who may have exceptional expertise in some areas of the field, but less experience in others, or who may not have kept up with the particular subfield since their most recent coursework. The New Palgrave is an important resource for students and faculty in business, finance, economics, and other areas. The topics covered are exhaustive and comprehensive and are placed in their historical perspective, indicating likely future trends as well as describing the contemporary situation. In recent updates, the new or expanded areas include: experimental and behavioral economics, game theory, international economics and technological change and growth. The original eight-volume print version of this dictionary ceased to be published after 2008. To preserve this valuable resource, an online subscription will be important, and the online version will be more accessible than a single print copy would ever have been.” (Cameron)
“The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics is an essential encyclopedic reference resource for students and faculty in business, finance, economics, and other areas. The topics covered are exhaustive and comprehensive. I have often used it to educate myself on a new topic relevant for my research and teaching. Students, in particular, would benefit from the online version enormously. Undergraduate students are reluctant to walk over to the library for anything other than course reserves! The online version will be a handy reference for term papers and readings, and additional reading material for classes. Graduate students, lacking the historical and broad-canvas perspective that the faculty members have, would find the New Palgrave their go-to for preliminary research as they survey dissertation topics. Since the 8-volume print version of this dictionary ceased after 2008, it will be important for UO libraries to subscribe to the online version in order to receive updated information and to provide wider access.” (Chakraborty)

CNKI China Doctoral/Masters Dissertations (CDMC) Database (series F-H)
“We need to recognize the quality of work now coming out of PhD and MA programs in China. Having access to these dissertations is crucial, and if I cannot get them through the UO Library, I would have to scramble to see how I can get hold of them. As you know, if we cannot even search, we will not know what is available. So “scrambling” does not replace access! I would hope there would be some kind of regional agreement that would allow scholars at least in Oregon, or possibly in the Pacific NW, to access this database. I know there are many professors at PSU and other schools who would love to be able to use this. In summary, I find this database indispensable. I strongly support a subscription for the Knight Library.” (Larson)

Taxonomic atlas of the benthic fauna of the Santa Maria Basin and Western Santa Barbara Channel: Final report
“The OIMB library currently has copies of the 14 volume set entitled: Taxonomic atlas of the benthic fauna of the Santa Maria Basin and western Santa Barbara Channel : final report / edited by James A. Blake & Andrew L. Lissner first published in 1993. This series was a gift acquired by the OIMB Librarian in 1996. Since the 1993 publication, revised editions of volumes 1-4, 7-8, 10-12 and 14 have been issued from 1996 to 2000. In the course of research my graduate students and I frequently need to access the revised volumes of this set as they deal with taxa at the continental shelf and slope depths. Now that OIMB owns an ROV (remotely operated vehicle) to study organisms at these deeper depths I anticipate an even greater need for these revised volumes in the future. This set is not routinely used by courses at OIMB (for courses we rely heavily on the Light and Smith Manual which addresses intertidal organisms). Due to financial constraints, and the teaching focus of the collection, these newer volumes have not been acquired.” (Emlet)

Digital Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps: California, Washington & Idaho
“The Sanborn Company produced fire insurance maps—lot by lot, building by building—for over 12,000 US cities from 1867-1970. Surveys were conducted every 10-15 years. UO currently subscribes only to the Oregon maps, but ideally the campus community should have access to the entire West Coast. The Sanborn maps are absolutely unparalleled in their capacity to reveal the fine-grained history of American cities. No other resource has as much information about the morphology of urban fabric—in terms of physical density, land use, building materials, street patterns, and more. I make extensive use of the maps in research on California, and I expect to use them in all of my future research projects. I teach with the maps in most of my classes, and I do everything I can to spread the word to my colleagues who don't already know about them.” (Howell)

It includes more than 20 academic journals from the Business III Collection. These journals complement the social science and humanities journals in the collection and span the disciplines of Finance (Emerging Markets Finance & Trade, Quarterly Journal of Finance), Marketing & Advertising (Journal of Marketing Theory & Practice, Marketing Letters), and Management & Organizational Behavior (MIR: Management International Review, International Studies of Management & Organization). This source will benefit greatly to marketing courses offered in the college of business. It will also facilitate my research using secondary archival data.” (Ye)

The 3-D Piano Method
Six DVDs plus 84 page study guide provide pianists with a systematic approach to interdependent, three-dimensional piano playing. Award-winning filmmaker Richard Breyer captures artist-teacher Fred Karpoff in live, unscripted lessons with twelve students at various stages of development. This DVD set won the 2011 MTNA Frances Clark Keyboard Pedagogy Award, a national award of recognition.
“This DVD collection is for UO keyboard faculty and students who wish to study their movements while playing the piano and find ways to reach their technical and musical goals. Reports from teachers at other universities mention the following improvements with their students: better coordination and execution of arpeggios, scales, trills, tremolos, octaves, repeated chords, pedaling, and rhythm. The 3-D Piano Method would be an important addition to the UO Library collection of educational DVDs.” (Wachter)
Jason Webb, East Asian Languages and Literatures
Dai Kan-Wa Jiten
“Taishukan's Dai Kan-Wa Jiten (Great Chinese-Japanese Dictionary) is the world's most authoritative dictionary of Chinese characters. The library owns an old edition in 13 volumes from the 1960s, when the project of compiling the dictionary (a mammoth undertaking) was not yet complete. This proposal is for the most recent, 15-volume, complete edition. Quite simply, this is the single most essential reference work for research in East Asian materials - Japanese, but also Chinese and Korean. It contains an exhaustive list of the 50,000 or so identified Chinese characters, as well as countless words derived from them. The 13-volume old edition owned by the library was fine for the 1960s, but the University really needs to own the complete current edition.” (Webb)
Glynne Walley, East Asian Languages and Literatures
Shinpen Nihon koten bungaku zenshu
“The Shinpen Nihon koten bungaku zenshu (Complete Anthology of Classical Japanese Literature, New Edition) is an 88-volume set containing meticulously annotated and glossed editions of canonical texts in the Japanese literary tradition. The library owns the previous edition of this title, produced in the early 1970s; the new edition contains completely updated annotations, as well as numerous texts that were not found in the old edition. This set is a necessary cornerstone to any research into pre-modern Japanese literature, history, or culture. It complements, rather than replaces, the previous edition, and similar series by other publishers. Possession of this set at UO would save faculty and students the necessity of borrowing from other libraries (only one Summit library, the University of Washington, owns it), and would fill a glaring gap in the library's collection of Japanese texts. It would be useful for scholarly research, which often begins with a consultation of these texts, and to advanced instruction in Japanese, as this set is not only authoritative, but reasonably accessible in its presentation to the advanced reader of Japanese.” (Walley)

Revue de Qumran (missing issues)
Revue de Qumran is the premiere peer-reviewed journal on the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the main scholarly forum for publication and discussion of new texts. For many years it was the only journal devoted entirely to the Dead Sea Scrolls and Qumran, and was the official forum for the international editorial team. The articles are of a highly technical nature, often presenting the first publication of new texts with critical comments, and so even the first volumes retain their scholarly importance.

Variety is one of the primary daily trade journals for the American film industry. It provides an important primary source for the study of production, marketing, distribution and exhibition of films in the United States and around the world. Variety supports scholarship that focuses on Hollywood both as an industry and a culture as well as the performance of race and ethnicity by Hollywood actors.

The New History of World Art (Sekai bijutsu daizenshu Toyo hen)
This 18-volume set covers Asian, Southeast Asian, Central Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern art. The value of this work lies not only in its highly sophisticated scholarly content, but also in its accompanying illustrations. Each volume comes with nearly 500 high resolution full-color plates with captions in English and Japanese. The series is a principle resource for any Asia-related art research and essential reading for graduate students in the field.

Les Catalogues des Salons
This multi-volume series is a facsimile reproduction of the original catalogues of the Salons des Academie des Beaux-Arts, the official exhibit of the Academy of Art in Paris. As such, it is the official record of the exhibited artists at the Paris Salon and a critical reference resource for any historian studying the art and artists of the 19th century. During most of the 19th century, it was the single most important event in the Western art world. The work represents a virtually complete list of artists who were active during this period.

Synopse zum Talmud Yerushalmi
This 7 volume set is a primary source synoptic critical edition of the Jerusalem Talmud. Each page presents all known manuscript versions of the text (seven columns in all), clearly laid out in column formation so that easy comparison can be made of the various texts.
These volumes provide a vital apparatus for those of us who study the philological and exegetical aspects of the Talmud. A change in a single word can change the meaning of an entire passage. As such, knowledge of all permutations is necessary in ascertaining the intent and meaning of any given text. I am finding the volumes indispensible in my research on rabbinic texts from the 3rd through 5th centuries.
In addition, the library does not own a Hebrew/Aramaic version of the Jerusalem Talmud that supplies the page and column numbering system rather than the Mishnaic numbering system.
Michael Stern, German & Scandinavian
Soren Kirkegaards Skrifter
I am writing a book on Kierkegaard at the moment, and these volumes are the only acceptable primary source material on Kierkegaard. The editions that the library currently owns are unacceptable and a scholar working on him cannot have a paper or book accepted with consulting these volumes. Kierkegaard is one of the most important philosophers of the 19th century and is referred to by scholars of literature, religion, and philosophy.

American Cinematographer, 1920-1949, Microform
Despite cinemas innate status as a technological visual medium, scholars of cinema have tended to focus on analyses of stories and themes and their relations to sociopolitical and economic contexts. Even when film styles are discussed, they are more likely to be analyzed only aesthetically (relationship to realism and impressionism, etc.). Examination of how these stories and styles are realized during actual filmmaking has received less attention in both historical and theoretical study of cinema. Integration of these two areas has been slow, partly because film studies is a relatively new academic discipline and scholars of literature, sociology, or area studies have interdisciplinarily studied films based on their own trainings. Moreover, critical study of cinematography is indispensable to understand better the current environment of digitalized multimedia technologies as a dispersed phenomenon. As a result of the high mobility of digital video cameras and the easy accessibility to editing software and online exhibition, new possibilities of cinematography have been discussed among filmmakers as well as spectators all over the world. I am currently writing a book on the transnational history of cinematography, particularly focusing on the dialogic and conflicting relationship between Japan, Hollywood, and Germany. I have been comparatively analyzing cinematography and critical discourses on cinematography, addressed in both film texts and documented texts. American Cinematographer (1920-1949), the journal of the American Society of Cinematographers, is an essential primary source for scholars interested in the technologies of cinema to learn the historical as well as ongoing development of cinematography in the Hollywood film industry. (The Knight Library owns the journal from 1950, but not earlier issues.) Professor Michael Aronson and I are organizing a panel on cinematography at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies in May 2009. We believe our panel would initiate critical study of cinematography, and acquisition of the early issues of American Cinematographer in microform will be tremendously useful for the cinema studies community at the UO.

Variety, 1905-1929, Microform
One of the oldest trade magazines devoted to popular entertainment, Variety has been published since 1905, when it was launched by Sime Silverman as a weekly periodical covering vaudeville. Beginning in 1907 the journal increasingly focused on the movie industry and it remains the primary source for information about the business of Hollywood.
Both my research and teaching are primarily devoted to the history of the American movie business, and Variety provides a critical record of the industry as it has developed since the turn of the last century. My current work involves two book-length projects on Hollywood cameramen and their work as cinematographers and this journal offers one of the most complete and accurate records for production information for the films and their personnel.
Priscilla Pena Ovalle, Cinema Studies
Variety, 1929-1940, 32 reels, Microform
Industry analysis is a key component of my research and teaching methods. As I complete my book manuscript on the production of Latina stars from the 1920s to the present, Variety will help me contextualize the financial decisions that the studios made as they were promoting Dolores Del Rio and Rita Cansino/Rita Hayworth films in the early part of the 20th century. Access to such information will also provide my students with a valuable resource for honing their film research skills; experience with the Variety collection will enhance their understanding of the early film industry practices that linger in contemporary Hollywood.

Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry III
This series of books is a comprehensive overview of organometallic chemistry, a modern hybrid field of chemistry at the interface of the traditional fields of organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. These books will have immediate impact on both research and teaching. No other books or journal articles cover practical aspects of doing laboratory work. Therefore, the books would be a valuable resource for students learning how to do something new in a lab and for learning new techniques. Other valuable aspects of COC III are the chapters on research applications. Written by experts, the informed speculation in these chapters is found nowhere else in the chemical literature. With todays emphasis on societal benefits of research, the material in these chapters is the type of information that, if included in a grant proposal, is often what makes the difference on whether or not it gets funded. The potential impact this information will have on securing grant funding for UO faculty makes COC III an outstanding investment.
Because it is a modern and active area of research, organometallic chemistry is taught in a large number of courses at the UO, from the sophomore level up to the graduate levels. (Currently, our graduates are suffering because there is not a suitable, up to date textbook.) All faculty and students involved in any of these many classes would benefit from COC III because the quality of the courses would dramatically improve.
Martin Luthers Werke. Weimarer Ausgabe: Abt. 4. Auflage 2003-09 submitted by Alexander Mathas, German and Scandinavian. Because of Martin Luther's enormous influence on Western culture, language, and literature, this collection is essential for cultural historians, Germanists, philosophers, theologians, and philologists to have access to his complete works in the German.
Britain in India, 1765-1905 submitted by Randall McGowen, History. This six-volume set of scarce primary source materials offers evidence of the often subtle relationship between Britain and India during the period of imperial expansion. The collection includes pamphlets, parliamentary reports, petitions, and memoirs.
