Research Hint: Sign-in to “Get It” Delivered

Posted on


The Libraries’ website allows you to request items online, but you must be signed-in to do so. If you access the website from off-campus — whether you’re a UTK-affiliated user or non-UTK user — you will not be able to see the full range of One Search results unless you sign-in prior to conducting your search.

We recommend that all users begin a search by signing in, using the Off-campus users: Sign in button on the library homepage.

GetIt-1

 

Enter your search in the One Search box.

Then request delivery of the Physical Item or a PDF Scan.

To pick up the Physical Item at one of our libraries, select a Pickup Location. UT faculty, graduate students, and staff may request Personal Delivery to a Work Address (i.e., department’s main office).

To have a PDF Scan delivered to your email, note the book chapters or article pages to be scanned. Be sure to specify “pages” or “chapters.”

Research Hint: One Search vs. UT Collections

Posted on


One Search finds items from UT Collections as well as many other electronic resources, including journal and newspaper articles, book chapters, books, reviews, legal documents, and much more (including content from many, though not all, of the individual databases provided by the UT Libraries).

Want to limit your search to only those items physically available at UT’s libraries or immediately viewable as full text? Select the UT Collections tab.

There it is! That’s what I wanted.

(Alternatively, you can expand your search results to discover even more resources.)








Dec. 20 upgrade may affect off-campus access

Posted on


On Saturday, December 20, UT’s Office of Information Technology will be upgrading the server that affects off-campus access to the Libraries’ electronic resources. The upgrade will begin at 8:00 am EST and should be completed by 6:00 pm EST. During that time, you may not be able to access our databases, e-books, or online journals. Visit the IT System Status Page for information about the status of the upgrade.






Cutover to new library system over Winter Holiday

Posted on


Over the Winter Holiday the UT Libraries will transition to a new cloud-hosted “backend” for its integrated library system. Beginning at 8 p.m. on December 11, there will be a brief disruption of Library Express delivery, pick-up, and scan-on-demand services.

This past semester we launched a major upgrade to the Libraries’ discovery portal. By the time students return for the spring semester, our massive database of library holdings will reside in the cloud. And behind-the-scenes processing, such as ordering, cataloging, and circulation of library materials, also will take place in the cloud.

For the most part, changes will be completely invisible to the library user. But users will notice some improvements to the library catalog, such as fewer clicks to request items. Buttons to “View It” (for electronic items) or “Get It” (for physical items) will display along with the initial results to a OneSearch query.

Library Express delivery, pick-up, and scan-on-demand will be back in business on Monday, December 29. If users have questions about Library Express or document delivery services, they may phone 865-974-0021 or email express@nullutk.edu).
