Libraries Offer Extended Hours During Exams

The UT Libraries are offering extended hours and lots of quiet study spaces to help students get through final exams.

Hodges Library will be open 24 hours from Dec. 5 through midnight Dec. 13. The Music Library will remain open until 11 p.m. Dec. 4 through Dec. 6 and Dec. 10 through Dec. 12. The Agriculture & Veterinary Medicine Library will be open until midnight Dec. 5 through Dec. 7 and Dec. 9 through Dec. 12.

Complete information about hours is available at www.lib.utk.edu/hours.

After midnight, certain areas in Hodges Library are reserved for quiet study, including the entire first and third floors, the Media Center and Studio (Room 245), and the Mary E. Greer Room (Room 258, just inside the Melrose Avenue entrance). Group study spaces are available in the Commons and on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors.

The Pendergrass AgVetMed Library will offer a “doodle table” for those who need a creative break from their study sessions.

We ask for your help in making the library a more pleasant study environment. Turn off cell phones, dispose of trash properly, and don’t leave your personal belongings unprotected.

Be sure to tell us what you think of the extended hours! There will be a suggestion box available to collect comments at the Melrose Avenue circulation desk in Hodges Library.

We encourage students to use the “T” for safe travel to and from late-night study sessions. For information about the T, visit www.ridethet.com.
