Welcome (back, for some!) to the University of Memphis' University Libraries! This Research Guide will assist you in learning what the Libraries have to offer you!

Do More in the Library

There is more going on in McWherter than just books and articles. the sandbox., McWherter Library's creatorspace, has tons of technology to reserve and check out. The Special Collections Department has rare books, archival materials, and lots of great collections full of historical resources. There are also many events, workshops, talks, and more going on all the time! Check out the links and calendar below to see how to take full advantage of your time at the University of Memphis.

Course Reserves

If your professor has put something "On Reserve at the Library," that means it is either a physical item that you can access by asking for it at the Check Out Desk in McWherter Library, or it is a digital file that you can access on the Course Reserves website.
