Can’t find your print journal in Hodges Library?

Posted on

Since UT Libraries owns the electronic version of many journals, we are moving thousands of duplicate print volumes from the Hodges Library Stacks to Storage. We do have a lot of materials on the move and our UT Libraries Catalog has yet to catch up with accurate location information. As a result, you may be unable to locate some print journals that are in transit.  Click the link below for assistance in getting the journal articles you need:
