What Can You Check Out?

We offer a wide range of research materials, technology, and room reservations. Below you will find a short list of the more common items that circulate. The patron group to which you belong determines the availability of items and their related policies. We encourage you to read over the full policies for your patron group, as it will provide fuller details and explanations. Questions? Call the Circulation Desk at (423) 425-4501 or contact us.

To request items UTC Library does not own, please read about Interlibrary Loan and borrowing from other libraries.

Library Billing FAQs

1. How do I pay my library fines?

You may pay your fines in person at the library's circulation desk, at the Bursar's Office, or through your MyMocsNet account.

2. What forms of payment do you accept?

The Library accepts cash, checks, and campus points.

3. I lost something I checked out. How much will I be charged?

Most books, media, and equipment are assessed a flat or acceptable replacement fee plus a $5.00 non-refundable processing fee. In lieu of paying the flat replacement fee, patrons may request to: a) provide a replacement item acceptable to the library OR b) provide payment to the library equal to the current market cost to replace the item. UTC patrons will need to contact us to initiate the above process.

4. Will I still be able to check things out if I have library fines? Will I be able to register for classes?

Library and university privileges will be suspended for patrons who have at least 1 billed item or $15.00 in fines
