Professional Help for Your Needs

The Paul Meek Library on the Martin campus is the primary hub for your work, with a staff of professional librarians and information specialists. But collections and services are available through library functions at the regional centers and with digital content available 24/7 to any student regardless of physical location. In addition, the Paul Meek Library houses the Steven E. Rogers Media Center, the J. Houston Gordon Museum, and the Alliene and Jimmie S. Corbitt Special Collections Department, which provide student access to emerging technologies, curate art and historical exhibits, and preserve the history of UT Martin and western Tennessee.

Finding your resources and services

Academic libraries educate students to navigate the complex universe of scholarly information regardless of physical location. Our libraries collect content in print and digital formats, including monographs, magazines, peer-reviewed academic journals, databases, audiovisual materials, research datasets, manuscript, and archival records. Library faculty and staff instruct students to locate, evaluate, select, and incorporate high quality information into their decision-making. These skills not only support student coursework and research but establish critical proficiencies for lifelong learning and professional success following graduation.



Research Services Tailored to Faculty Needs

The Paul Meek Library actively supports faculty research. Too often, the primary work of teaching, grading papers, and service commitments force research activity to a back seat in one's own career effort. Research services at the Paul Meek Library are available to support literature searches in UTM database resources and assist with outputs to conferences, peer reviewed journals, newspapers, magazines, books, and other publications. The Library can also collaborate with faculty on literature review for external funding applications.

Partnership with professional librarians saves time and effort while faculty attend to their primary work of teaching and student learning. Research support from Paul Meek Library is available to all faculty members and can be tailored to the timeframe of your research efforts.
