The database currently contains about 2,000 citations focused on the fields of biology and ecology and includes research publications of former UT botany professors.

UTKFriends and fans of the Great Smoky Mountains now have an added resource to research the history, plants, animals, culture, and digitized photographs of the mountains and surrounding region.

The Great Smoky Mountains Regional Project at the UT Libraries has released the new Database of the Smokies (DOTS), a free online bibliography of Smoky Mountains material published since 1934, the year the national park was established.

The database contains searchable records of books, scholarly and popular journal articles, government and scientific reports, theses and dissertations, maps, digitized photographs, and travel guides. Wherever copyright restrictions permit, citations are linked to scanned copies of the published item.
