- the book is checked out
The tutorial above shows that if a book is already checked out, you may recall it using the Library Catalog. The person who has it checked out must return the book within 10 days. You may also place an interlibrary loan request for it if you don't want to wait for the recall.
- the book is missing
Request a search at the Hodges Circulation Desk if UT owns the book and it is not where it should be on the shelf.
- the book is not owned by UT
You may use interlibrary loan to get a book from another library, free of charge. Or, you can ask me to buy the book, which is slower than using ILL, but good if you think the Library should own the book. See below for interlibrary loan information.
- Interlibrary Loan (ILLIAD)
If your class needs materials that always seem to be checked out, you may want to put these materials on Reserve at the beginning of the semester so that they will be accessible.
- Scholarly Communication
Copyright, publishing models, putting your Selected Works into the Institutional Repository (TRACE), etc.
This tutorial provides an interactive lesson on using Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, the primary articles database in Architecture and Design, but you may also want to see the other Art and Architecture databases at http://www.lib.utk.edu/databases
The tutorial above shows finding architecture books by using the BooksPlus box on the library home page at http://www.lib.utk.edu
See this tutorial on limiting your search in the library catalog (BooksPlus) to media.
- Request Article/Book Chapter Scans
Article and Book Chapter scans are free. To request a scan, click on the Items tab in BooksPlus and then "Article or Chapter Scan" and fill out the form.
- Featured Database--Archivision
Archivision is an educational image resource for architecture, urban design, gardens, landscapes, parks and public art. It contains over 15,000 professional quality images. Create a login using your University of Tennessee, Knoxville email address (must end in @utk.edu). Find images after restricting search to My Library.
- Book Suggestions
Thanks to all of you students and faculty who participated in the project to suggest books for the Library. You may also suggest other books by emailing me at email@example.com.
