Lamar Alexander Building LOBBY will be CLOSED for renovation from March 13.

The library will remain open, however the Lamar Alexander Building LOBBY will be CLOSED for renovation from March 13.

All students and faculty will need to enter and exit the building from the north (Madison Ave.) side of the basement level.

A card swipe has been installed and everyone has access just as they did on the ground level.

Also, the elevators will be disabled from exiting on the lobby level.

In case of an emergency, people will exit the building from the stairs, directly out the building and not through the lobby.

We apologize for this inconvenience.


Library Open on Tuesday, 1/20/2015

The library will re-open for normal hours on Tuesday, January 20th at 8 a.m. Some renovation work is ongoing, so not all services will be fully functional. Only UTHSC faculty, staff, and students will be allowed into the library until all renovations have been completed.

Library Renovation Moving Forward – Move Date Adjusted!

The Health Sciences Library is moving to newly renovated space on the second and third floors of the Alexander Building beginning on Wednesday, December 10th! The library will close on Tuesday, December 9, at 10 p.m. and may reopen on January 5th, 2015 or sooner if possible. During this time, all electronic resources will be available 24/7. If you have questions or need help, email your liaison. As challenging as the library renovation has been for all of us, the results will be worth the effort. For more information see our Renovation Update page.


The Library is Open

The Health Sciences Library has reopened! We are now located temporarily on the 6th floor of the Alexander Building. Our times and services are limited, so visit our Renovation Updates page for more information.


Library Renovation Update — We’re Moving (Temporarily)

At midnight, December 19, 2013, 24/7 library access will end due to the library renovation. At 5:00 p.m. on December 20, the library will officially close until January 24, 2014. During this period, everything in the library (e.g., books, shelving, furniture, offices, materials) will be packed up and moved to the Alexander 6th floor.

At 8:00 a.m. on January 24, the library will reopen on the 6th floor with curtailed services and limited space. When we reopen on the 6th floor, the new library hours will be:

  • Monday-Friday: 8:00 a.m. — 10:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 8:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m.
  • Sunday: 2:00 p.m. — 10:00 p.m.

These hours will remain in effect until such time as library floors 2, 3, and 4 are completely renovated, and we move back downstairs (e.g., 6-12 months). Then, they will complete work on the 5th floor and the renovation will be complete!

There will be no 24/7 library access during the renovation period, and the library will be closed to non-UTHSC patrons. Only UTHSC students, faculty, and staff will routinely be allowed entrance to the library during the renovation period.

If you have any questions, contact us. For more information, go to our Renovation Updates page.


Library Renovation Update – Nov. 11, 2013

November 11, 2013 – The renovation plans for the library are moving along nicely, and we will be moving the week of January 6-10, 2014 into temporary quarters on the 6th floor of the Alexander building during the first renovation phase. The first phase of the Alexander building renovation will include the basement and library floors 2, 3, and 4. The second phase will include 5 and 6, and the third phase floor 7.

We plan to close the library at 5pm on Friday, December 20th (last day before the holiday break). The university is closed the following week, and we will complete packing up the library December 30-January 3. Everything in the library will be packed and ready for the move beginning on Jan 6th. E-resources will still be available 24/7. Many library services will continue during the renovation with some limitations.

We hope to reopen the library for business (and students) on the 6th floor on Friday, January 24, 2014. We are still working to determine library hours for our limited space. We anticipate the first renovation phase will take many months. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. The results will be worth the wait with greatly expanded seating capacity and student study, learning, and information commons.
