Collection Services

The Collection Services Department supports the University and Library mission of learning, research, and service through acquiring, describing, organizing, and maintaining both the physical (print books and journals, CDs, DVDs, maps, etc.) and online (eBooks, eJournals, and databases) collections for the UTC Library. This is accomplished through purchase, lease, or borrowing of items through Interlibrary Loan. This includes acquiring, housing, preserving, and providing access to historical items and collections, particularly those that relate to the University, Chattanooga, the state of Tennessee, and the American South. Many of our Special Collections contain unique, primary resource materials unavailable elsewhere.
