Removal of Selected Print Journal Volumes

As part of our ongoing efforts to better serve UTHSC students, the library has undertaken an effort to remove selected print journal volumes from the 4th and 5th floors. Journal volumes were selected for removal based on a variety of factors, including online availability, low usage, and physical deterioration. The initial phase of this effort, completed in mid-May, was to physically remove volumes from the 5th floor.

The next phase will focus on updating our catalog system to reflect which journal volumes have been removed. While this process is under way, you may encounter some discrepancies between our catalog and what is physically on the shelves.

We ask for your patience during this process as we work to better serve the UTHSC community. If you have any questions, please contact the Information Desk at or 901-448-5404.
