Research assistance (lib.utk.edu/askusnow) is available by walk-in, e-mail, phone, chat and text, and by appointment with the librarian who specializes in your discipline (lib.utk.edu/librarians). The UT Libraries holds 3.6 million print volumes and provides access to a vast collection of electronic journals, books, and media. Even when you are not on campus or at the library, we are available to answer questions and help you find the resources you need. 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.

Students may check out equipment such as laptops and cameras, use group study rooms, attend online classes, create videos or multimedia projects in the Studio, use a Practice Presentation Room, or visit the coffee shop and convenience store.
