Everyone is welcome to visit the library and use our materials in the building. Alumni can obtain a temporary computer login by presenting an alumni card to the Public Services staff in Hodges Library. If you bring your own laptop or device, you can access our databases through the visitors' wireless network.
Unfortunately, you cannot access our e-journals, databases from off-campus because our license agreements restricts access to current UTK faculty, students and staff. If a visit is inconvenient, ask your local public library about their available resources and services. The Tennessee Electronic Library (TEL) is a collection of databases available free to any Tennessee resident.
UTK alumni may also purchase a donor card to check out books from UT Libraries. Your local public library can also borrow the books and articles you need.
