The UT library deans and directors recently formed the University of Tennessee Library Council (UTLC), a coordinating body that acts through consensus regarding issues of interest to all University of Tennessee campus libraries.
The UTLC consists of the deans and directors of each of the University of Tennessee libraries: John C. Hodges Library, Lupton Library, Paul Meek Library, Health Sciences Library, Law Library, Preston Medical Library, and Space Institute Library.
The purpose of the UTLC is to advance the operations of the University of Tennessee libraries for the benefit of faculty, students, staff, administrators, and practitioners.
The UTLC develops positions, long-term plans, and strategy for library resources and services and communicates these to other university groups and offices including the Faculty Senates, the Office of the President, and the Office of Academic Affairs and Student Success.
At the UTLC Summit, held in Nashville July 26-27, 2012, the UT library deans and directors and the UT e-resource librarians met with UT System representatives. Discussions included UT multisite license development and support, common purchasing issues for campus library contracts, trends in e-resource licensing, and ongoing communication strategies and methods.
