The Information Is Our Game campaign ended in 2016.
Since that date, some assignments have changed, some departments have been reorganized, and some faculty and staff members featured here are no longer with the University of Tennessee Libraries. For a current list of library faculty and staff, check the Libraries’ Staff Directory. To identify the librarian who specializes in your discipline, see this list of Subject Librarians.
BIG IDEAS demand reliable information. The University Libraries supports scholarship, research, and learning at UT by acquiring, organizing, preserving, and facilitating access to the world’s knowledge. The wide-ranging expertise of our librarians might surprise you.
As day manager and overnight supervisor in Public Services at the Hodges Library, Michael Dodson and Sarah Holt strive every day (and night) to give each library visitor a pleasant and productive experience.
Staff at the Public Services desk are the first library representatives that visitors encounter as they enter Hodges Library. They’re here to assure that library patrons locate the services and resources they need — whether it’s checking out a book, using a computer, or even lodging a complaint.
The Public Services desk is where library users can check out circulating materials, as well as pick up materials set aside as “holds” and course reserves, or borrowed as interlibrary loans. Public Services also manages the Equipment Checkout desk in the Commons, which lends laptops, cameras, scanners, calculators, and dozens of other items to UT users. In addition, Public Services reserves and provides support for the library’s classrooms.
Need directions? Need to check out a book or pay a fine? Find a security officer? Inquire about course reserves? Drop by the Public Services desk just inside the Hodges 2nd floor entrance (Melrose Avenue). The Public Services staff have the answers.
