The Webster C. Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library will close over the summer for renovations to the HVAC system in the Veterinary Building. Pendergrass Library services will temporarily relocate to the Animal Science Lab (Brehm Animal Science, Room 234) during the summer of 2015.
The Pendergrass Library location in the Veterinary Building will be inaccessible soon after finals in May 2015. The relocation is expected to last throughout the summer term and may overlap with the Fall 2015 term.
Many details are still undetermined at this time. We remain dedicated to serving the faculty, staff, and students of UTIA during this time. We have created a guide (http://libguides.utk.edu/pendergrassconstruction) to provide more information as it becomes available. Please check the guide and Pendergrass website regularly for updates. The exact dates of closure will be posted as soon as they are known.
Online resources accessible through the Pendergrass Library website will still be available, but much of the physical collection will be inaccessible. Faculty, in particular, are encouraged to check out materials that will be needed over the summer, in advance of the closing.
If you have any concerns, or if there are services that you know will be important to you during this time period, please let us know so that we can prioritize making them available. You can call (865) 974-7338 or contact a librarian.
