NEW LOOK! We’ll soon launch our new website

Posted on


beta18JulyAs part of our ongoing efforts to serve our users effectively, UT Libraries will be switching over to a new website design in the next few weeks.

The new site is still a work in progress, so you will likely notice regular changes over the next few weeks as we work diligently to ensure everything is correct by the official launch on or around August 12th. At that time, this beta site will be fully functional and serve as our new home on the web.

We encourage you to visit the beta site and offer us your feedback. The new design should make it easier to find information on library services, events, and news.

Join the conversation on Facebook (facebook.com/utklibraries) and help us make the library website even better.




Music Library closing temporarily for move to new Music Center

Posted on


The Music Library will close at 5 pm this Friday, July 12, to prepare for the upcoming move to the new Natalie L. Haslam Music Center. The Music Library plans to reopen on August 21 if circumstances allow.

During the closure, online resources accessible through the Music Library homepage (http://www.lib.utk.edu/music/) will still be available for use, but the physical collection will be inaccessible during much of this time. Patrons are advised to check out Music Library materials before 5 pm on July 12 if materials will be needed this summer.

If you have an unanticipated need, please request the item through the Libraries’ catalog and also send an e-mail to Josh Aldorisio (jaldoris@utk.edu). When possible, Music Library staff will try to fulfill these special requests. The loan periods of all materials will be extended to the August 21 re-opening date, but patrons may also return items to Hodges Library.

We in the Music Library apologize for this inconvenience, but we look forward to assisting library users in the new location.
