Save the date! The campus is invited to an Open House at the new location of the UT Libraries’ Special Collections. Visit us Thursday, September 10, 3:00-5:00 p.m., at our new location in Room 121 of the John C. Hodges Library.
Special Collections acquires and preserves collections of manuscripts, books, printed ephemera, maps, and other unique research materials. Examples of these exceptional collections, such as materials from our significant collection of materials on Knoxville-born writer James Agee, will be on display at the Open House on September 10. “Talk of Summer Evenings,” an exhibit celebrating the centennial of Agee’s birth, will feature Agee’s writings about Knoxville.
Researchers from around the world travel to Knoxville to use the one-of-a-kind materials housed in our Special Collections. These primary source materials are now more readily accessible to UT faculty and students at our new location in the main library.
Drop by our Open House on September 10 to learn how UT’s Special Collections can enhance your research.
