UT Libraries Resources for High Schools

This research guide orients high schools groups visiting the library at UTK. It is a refresher for groups that have already visited the university.

Books Beyond Your School

If you need a book that is not held at your school library, you can try to get it in three ways:

  • Find it in a local library
  • Ask your school media specialist (librarian) about Interlibrary Services
  • See if you can use it on UT's campus (you will only be able to use it within the library)


Go the the library homepage and type in your search in One Search. If you click on advanced search, you can limit by topic, date, or language. Be sure to limit to Books or E-Books. You can see if the book is "Available" or "Checked Out."
