Books -- For the library, the books should be more reference in focus since many materials become dated so easily. The books chosen should be well respected within the field and contribute to the needs of the organization:

1. Tri-part set: Texas Wildlife, Texas Birds, Texas Trees and Wildflowers -- Nature guides written by James Kavanagh; illustrated and laminated for field use. See: http://www.amazon.com/Texas-Wildlife-Introduction-Familiar-Species/dp/1583552545/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1381005255&sr=1-2&keywords=texas+wildlife

2. Hodge, L. (2000). Official Guide to Texas Wildlife Management Areas. Austin: Texas Parks and Wildlife Press. Overview of Texas' 51 wildlife management areas including detailed descriptions and locator maps.

3. Kareiva, P. & Marvier, M. (2010). Conservation Science: Balancing the Needs of People and Nature. New York: Roberts and Company. More of a textbook, but an up-to-date reference on conservation science, particularly the role of balancing development with conservation principles.

4. Epstein, M., et al. (2008). Making Sustainability Work: Best Practices in Managing and Measuring Corporate Social, Environmental and Economic Impacts. London and San Francisco: Greenleaf Publishing Company. In recent years it has become obvious that there needs to be a balance between corporate development, environmental conservation, and governmental regulations. This would be an important reference book to help employees understand how managing sustainability requires all stakeholders working together.

5. Depending on budget, a selection of one or more of the Texas Natural History Guides. These include publications devoted to snakes, waterfowl, wildflowers, and more. It would be wise for the organization to stock as many of these as possible for reference materials. http://utpress.utexas.edu/index.php/books/series/series/Texas-Natural-History-Guides%E2%84%A2
