Back by popular demand, it’s a therapy dog at the UTC Library!
To help relieve exam-stress this week, our good friends from the UT College of Veterinary Medicine’s H.A.B.I.T. (Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee) program are bringing a therapy dog for visits.
Research shows the benefits of spending time with an animal – even a short visit has positive effects – and the UTC Library wants to help give you these benefits this semester.
Three Visits This Week!
Since we all have such varied schedules, we will offer 3 different times for you to visit with a therapy dog. Drop by the first floor of the library, near the Dean’s office, at any (or all) of these times.
- Tuesday December 2, 3:00 to 4:30pm
- Wednesday, December 3, 3:00 to 6:00pm
- Thursday, December 4, 3:00 to 5:00pm
Students, faculty and staff are all invited to meet our furry guests – there will be a different dog each day!
Each certified therapy dog will be accompanied by a trained handler. And if you prefer not to be near the dog for any reason, you can still use the library during this time. The dogs will be located in a dedicated section of the first floor of the library, near the Dean’s office, and will not impede access to computers, printers, elevators, restrooms, or vending machines. As well, the 2ndand 3rd floors will be animal-free.
For more information on the H.A.B.I.T. program, visit the UT site at http://www.vet.utk.edu/habit/index.php.
Hope to see you there!
You already know that the Library can help you get ready for finals with study materials, study spaces (including rooms for group study) and all of the tech you could need (computers, laptops, calculators, audio recorders and more). But did you know that the Library can help your study breaks too?
Take a study break in the Relief Room at the Library – enjoy soothing beach sounds and calming images, aromatherapy, light-hearted activities to give your brain a break, and some sweet snacks for nourishment.

The Library offers another fun study break the next night with the popular Cartoons & Cereal event. As the name implies, you can enjoy all the sweet sugary cereal (or pop tarts!) you remember from childhood while you take a quick cartoon break. All of the essential characters will be there – Spongebob, the Rugrats, Kim Possible, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Ed, Edd, n Eddy!

All Gale databases are back to working normally again. Thanks for your patience!
Unexpectedly this morning (11/12/14), Gale databases to which the UTC Library subscribes are unavailable. We have alerted the database team that this is happening, and they are working to fix it as quickly as possible. Please be patient while the work is being completed.
In the meantime, please contact the Library if you need help finding alternate resources.
Please excuse the inconvenience!
To pass or not to pass: that is the question. Read The Student’s (?) Soliloquy from the 1911 student yearbook.
