Hodges Library Public Services

Materials – Loan Periods, Renewals & Fines

Books and Periodicals can be found in the stacks of Hodges Library on the third through the sixth floors. You can find our catalog through the library’s OneSearch portal. Once you have found the book(s) you desire, they can be loaned out to you at the Public Services Desk on the 2nd floor of Hodges, Melrose entrance. Equipment Checkout is located in Commons South.

Fines may be paid at the Hodges Library Public Services Desk or at the AgVet-Med Pendergrass Library Public Services Desk. We accept VolCard, Credit Card, or Checks at these two locations.

We do not accept cash to pay fines. You may also pay over the phone with a Credit Card by calling 865-974-4351. If you wish to appeal a fine, please do so online with our Fine Appeal Form.

Renewals may be done in person or online. Find out how to renew your books online on the How to: Renew Books page.
