Map Collection Moves, Makes Room for More Study Space in Hodges Library

The UT Libraries’ Map Collection is relocating, making room for more study space on the ground floor of Hodges Library. Map Services closes May 6 to begin preparing for the move.

Over the summer, the remainder of the map collection will be moved to new quarters in the James D. Hoskins Library (1401 Cumberland Avenue). The entire collection will once again be in one place, and the map collections will be staffed and remain accessible after the relocation takes place. The vacated space on the ground floor of Hodges Library will serve as study space and overflow seating for One Stop. The renovated space should open before fall semester.

Geospatial services (GIS assistance, geospatial data, etc.) will be relocated to Commons South alongside new scholarly digital services.

Library users will have access to the map collections by visiting the Storage Reading Room, 200 Hoskins Library.

If you’ve never visited the Hoskins Library, a pleasant surprise awaits you. The James D. Hoskins Library, designed by renowned architect Charles Barber and built between 1929 and 1931, is collegiate Gothic in style and features vaulted ceilings decorated with literary inscriptions. The main campus library moved from the Hoskins Library to the renovated Hodges Library in 1987.

Please bear with us as we relocate services.
