Return ILL books by Monday, May 2nd

Due to the Library closure this summer, all books borrowed through the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service by students are now due and must be returned to the Macdonald-Kelce Library no later than Monday, May 2nd.

ILL service for items borrowed from other libraries is now suspended for the Spring semester for undergraduate students not continuing into the May/Summer semester. 

We will continue to borrow books and articles for faculty, Friends of the Library, alumni, and all students, graduates and undergraduates, who are registered for the summer sessions.

We will be located in the Riverside classroom, no. 109, temporarily for the summer beginning May 9th, when library construction begins.  Please keep posted for further information about the Library’s summer hours.

Please check this guide for further details.

Library end of semester hours


National Library Workers Day


Libraries work because we do!

Were you in a pinch this semester and had someone at the library help you out? Was your computer on the fritz or were you struggling to start that research paper? Go ahead and thank a librarian today – don’t be shy!

It takes a lot of behind the scenes work to run a library. From our InterLibrary Loan staff who finds your articles that you need from other libraries, to the librarians who purchase, catalog, and manage the books (and maybe read them sometimes), we work hard to make UT a place that values quality scholarship and academic success for all students and faculty.

Join us this week in celebrating all of our hard workers here at Macdonald-Kelce Library.

Library Relocation this summer

If you are taking or teaching a class this summer, please take note:

Macdonald-Kelce Library will be closed through the summer semester for maintenance work. All library staff and services will be located in the Riverside Center, starting Monday, May 9th.
