Abstract
The Telescope Array has accumulated the largest UHECR data set in the Northern hemisphere. We make use of these data to search for large- and small-scale anisotropy of UHECR arrival directions. At small angular scales, we report an update on searches for clustering of events and on correlations with various classes of putative sources. At large angular scales, we revisit, with the new data and with new tests, the localized excess of events known as the TA ``hot spot''. We review some other studies of the arrival directions and corresponding implications for the nature of UHECR sources.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and readers, and in "proceeding" format which is more detailed and complete.
