Alma Update: Library Express

Posted on


The UT Libraries completed the majority of the migration to Alma, our new fulfillment and management client, during the winter break. We believe this migration will result in a better functionality for our patrons and a streamlined Web site.

However, there are a few on-going issues associated with this process the UTIA and UTCVM community need to be aware of in the short term.

  • Library Express is not making departmental deliveries at this time.  They are diligently working to resolve this issue, but there is not an estimate when the service will resume. Patrons can requests holds for pick-ups at Pendergrass and/or PDF scans as an alternative.
  • Patrons must use the ‘Sign-in for More Options’ function in the OneSearch/Primo interface to request physical items or scans. Use the ‘Get It’ hyperlink for item pick-up and scan requests. Use the ‘View It’ option to access e-books, e-journals, and direct database links.

We apologize for any inconvenience these temporary disruptions cause our patrons and are working with our colleagues to restore these services.  Please contact Pendergrass Library with any questions or problems.






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.

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.)




Music Library opening earlier for Spring 2015

Posted on


Beginning January 7th, 2015, while class is in session during the Spring 2015 semester, the George F. DeVine Music Library will be opening at 7:45 am Monday – Friday.

Please note that opening early is a trial run this semester. At the end of the semester, we will assess the usage we had during the additional time open to determine the need and decide whether or not this will be a permanent change.

Thank you and have a great semester!
