Exam Extended Hours Reports

Each semester during final exams, the UT Libraries extends its hours of operation. Traffic reports and comments received during assessments of extended operation in past years have led to the Libraries’ current schedule of 24-hour operation during the working week throughout the semester and continue to inform offerings during our “De-Stress for Success” exam week programming.
