The Webster C. Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library will relocate over the summer for renovations to the HVAC system in the Veterinary Building. Pendergrass Library services will temporarily be housed in the Animal Science Lab (Brehm Animal Science, Room 243) during the summer of 2015.
The Pendergrass Library location in the Veterinary Building will be inaccessible starting Friday, May 8. The relocation is expected to last throughout the summer term. We intend to reopen at the start of the Fall semester.
Online resources accessible through the Pendergrass Library website will be available, but the physical collection at Pendergrass will be inaccessible. Faculty, in particular, are encouraged to check out materials that will be needed over the summer, in advance of the closing. In addition, faculty please submit course reserve requests for summer and fall semesters by Friday, April 24. Submit your course reserve requests using this e-form and use the additional comments field to note if the materials requested are for the summer or fall term(s).
We remain dedicated to serving the faculty, staff, and students of UTIA during this time. Many services will be available during the summer, including: Research assistance, library instruction, Interlibrary Loan, Library Express, limited equipment checkout, large-format printing, 3D printing, and statistical consulting.
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.
