How to Library: Spring 2021
January 15, 2021

During the Spring 2021 semester, classes at the University of Tennessee are being offered in person, online, and through a hybrid combination. UT Libraries resources and services will follow a similar structure. 

We encourage you to review our quick guide on How to Library below and check out our FAQ page for more details. As always, the latest information and library news is available to you when you connect with @UTKLibraries on InstagramTwitterFacebook, and YouTube.

We look forward to partnering with our Volunteer community to ensure everyone has a safe and healthy visit to any of our spaces throughout the spring semester.

Please remember, masks are required in all library spaces, including study rooms.

UT Libraries is always open online – and we’ve always got your back.
