The library is everywhere you are. Research assistance is available by walk-in, e-mail, phone, chat and text, and by appointment with the librarian who specializes in your discipline. The UT Libraries holds 3.5 million print volumes but places a high priority on providing access to electronic resources. Visit library.utk.edu to chat with a librarian, find books and electronic resources, watch a video tutorial about using the library, or connect with us on social media.

The John C. Hodges Library in the heart of campus houses the majority of the UT Libraries’ collections and many unique services. The technology-rich Commons, which comprises the entire second floor of Hodges Library, is a popular gathering place for students, for both studying and socializing. The Commons brings together all the tools students need to succeed: technology, research assistance, tutoring services, a coffee shop, and a convenience store. At the Commons, students can check out equipment such as laptops and cameras, work collaboratively in group study rooms, create videos or multimedia projects in the Studio, or get help at the Writing Center, Math Tutorial Center, and Student Success Center. During the semester the Hodges Library remains open 24 hours, five nights a week.

Two branch libraries on the Knoxville campus offer specialized collections and services to their patrons: the Webster C. Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library on the Ag Campus and the George F. DeVine Music Library in the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center. Other unique collections available to students include Special Collections (manuscripts and rare books) in Hodges Library and online digitized collections of some of the library’s unique holdings.

The UT Libraries participates in the cultural life of the university, hosting art and video contests and the Writers in the Library reading series.
