There’s a new way to get research assistance at the UT Libraries: texting.

The library has added texting to the many ways that students and other researchers can reach a librarian. Now, library users can text as well as chat, email, phone, or get help in-person.

Text your brief library or research question to 865-383-1323. Add us to your contacts and you can have librarians at your service wherever you and your phone may travel during the following hours: Monday-Thursday, 9 am – midnight; Friday, 9 am – 6 pm; Closed Saturday; Sunday, noon – midnight.

The new texting service extends the UT Libraries’ customer interface to any location with cell phone service — no internet access required. So text us from anywhere, even if you’re just up in the stacks, studying.
