Re-carpeting on all floors of Hodges Library will begin following final exams and will continue through June.
New carpet will be installed on the ground floor, first floor (including the auditorium), and all stacks floors (floors 3-6). Carpets in faculty studies and beneath graduate carrels also will be replaced.
Small areas within the stacks may be temporarily inaccessible. And access to individual faculty studies may be blocked for brief periods.
If you are unable to access needed materials, please ask for help at the circulation/information desk near the Melrose Avenue entrance.
UT students, faculty, and staff can obtain books from closed areas by using the “Request” link in the library catalog. (Read “How it works” at lib.utk.edu/request/library-express.)
The Libraries will make every effort to assure that the process is as unobtrusive as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.
