Other Nearby Libraries

Many local academic and institutional libraries are open to the public. If you’re looking for something we don’t have, you might want to try another library rather than waiting for our InterLibrary Loan service to locate it for you. Most of these libraries participate in the TexShare Card Program, which will allow UTHSC affiliates to check books out.

You can also view a schedule of training classes in records management and search for records in the UTHSC Archives.

Questions should be sent to Anne Comeaux, Assistant Director for Special Collections and Records Management Officer for the UT HSC.
