Keep your laptops safe by borrowing a locker

Use me! I don't mind...

Use me! I don’t mind…

Freshmanwelcome to the Macdonald-Kelce Library and to UT! Everyone else, hello again and welcome to the Fall 2015 semester! We know how excited you all are to start writing those papers 😉

If you’re studying in the library and need to take a break, make a phone call, or grab some lunch, please don’t leave your valuables laying around. People will swipe laptops, phones, and textbooks. Those people are terrible, but unfortunately it does happen now and again. To help you out, the library has lockers for you to store your stuff temporarily or for the entire day. They are located next to the Journals on the first floor.

The Circulation desk will issue you a key and you can use one locker for any amount of time until one hour before the library closes. Keep in mind no personal locks may be used. The full policy is listed on our “About the Macdonald-Kelce Library” Guide.

Questions? Stop by the Circulation Desk or call 813 253 6231.


Faculty & Staff LibGuide

Welcome back!

The semester is almost upon us and that means putting your classes in order. The library can help. Please take a look at the Faculty, Staff, and Alumni Resources  LibGuide. It will answer your questions about putting materials on reserve, ILL, booking library instruction classes, and other useful info.

Did you know you have a liaison librarian dedicated to purchasing for your department? Need someone to proctor your exams (hint: it’s not the Library)? Do you know the ins and outs of your Intellectual Property Rights as a faculty member? (of course you do!) Bookmark the LibGuide as a resource for you to use throughout the semester.

New Databases

Four new databases were recently added to our collection. Sign into Esearch to access. Check them out and let us know if you have any questions:

ACM Digital Library

A vast repository of citations, articles, and papers from ACM journals, newsletters, and conference proceedings can be explored with basic or advanced search capabilities, or browsed by publication.

Digital Theatre Plus

Offers the highest quality online experience of theatre arts, working with creatives and educators to ensure that watching and discovering the world of a play online is an exciting, relevant and authentic learning experience. Digital Theatre Plus captures the moments before the curtain rises and after the curtain falls, providing valuable insight into the play making process. We share the hidden drama of the weeks, days, and hours before ‘lights up’ on stage.

Journal Citation Reports

The Journal Citation Reports allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from approximately 12,000 scholarly and technical journals and conference proceedings from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries. Journal Citation Reports is the only source of citation data on journals, and includes virtually all specialties in the areas of science, technology, and social sciences.
