The University of Tennessee Libraries own approximately 2.6 million volumes and subscribe to more than 31,000 periodicals and serial titles.* The UT Libraries are committed to providing access to information in all formats. A strong collection of electronic resources is available through the Libraries’ webpage at www.lib.utk.edu. UT’s Digital Library Initiatives hosts a growing number of digital collections. The Libraries’ membership in the Association of Research Libraries reflects the university’s support of large collections of library materials to meet the needs of a comprehensive university curriculum.

Experts in each library offer help and assistance in using the library for research. AskUsNow! (www.lib.utk.edu/refs/askusnow/) provides e-mail, IM (instant message), and telephone connections to librarians. Students will find a wide variety of materials and services in the main library (John C. Hodges Library), three branches on the Knoxville campus (Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library, Music Library, and Special Collections), and the Social Work Library in Nashville.

Students can search the library catalog and hundreds of databases at any library location – and through the UT Libraries’ website. Interlibrary Services is available to help students find and retrieve materials that are not available in the UT Libraries. Workshops and classes are offered throughout the semester to help students learn how to get the most out of the Libraries’ services. The services and facilities of the UT Libraries are accessible to persons with disabilities.

The John C. Hodges Main Library (1015 Volunteer Blvd.) is a 350,000 square-foot building housing collections in all subject areas. Research assistance is available in the Commons (Rooms 220 and 235). Research Services (Room 135) offers more in-depth research consultation. The Commons, which is jointly managed and staffed by the University Libraries and the Office of Information Technology, also offers a computer help desk, a wide range of software applications and computer equipment, spaces for individual and group study, and loaner laptops configured to access the wireless network. The Commons is open continuously from noon on Sunday to midnight on Friday, during Fall and Spring Semesters. A coffee shop and supply store on the second floor serve students throughout the day and evening hours. The Studio (Room 245) offers students a state-of-the-art lab for graphics, video and web production. Still and video cameras are available for checkout from the Studio. Map Services (Room G20) supports research needs for maps and geographic information, and circulates GPS equipment.

The Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library (Room A-113, Veterinary Teaching Hospital) has a strong collection in agriculture; veterinary, comparative and human medicine; environmental studies and biodiversity; and related biological sciences.

The Music Library, currently located in 301 Music Building, will relocate temporarily during construction of a new Music Building. The Music Library has a comprehensive collection of music and music literature, including books, scores, audio and video recordings, current periodicals, and microfilm. Most materials in the Library of Congress “M” classification are located here.

Special Collections is dedicated to building collections of manuscripts, rare books, and other unique research materials. Collection strengths include Tennessee authors, Tennessee history and politics, Oak Ridge, and TVA. The Great Smoky Mountains Regional Collection is an ongoing effort to collect and preserve materials on the region. Students are welcome to use Special Collections. Materials from Special Collections cannot be checked out but may be used on site.

The Libraries maintain the university’s Archives. The Archives, housed in Hoskins Library, contain official records of the university; items published by its units, departments, and agencies; and materials that document University of Tennessee life.

The Social Work Library (Room 292, 193-E Polk Ave., Nashville) serves College of Social Work students in field practice across the state. The library has a working collection of materials in social work and related disciplines.

Students and faculty may use the libraries at any of the University of Tennessee campuses across the state.

* Data describe the Knoxville campus, excluding the Law Library. The Law Library on the Knoxville campus and the libraries located on the campuses in Chattanooga, Martin, Memphis, and Tullahoma are separately administered.
