UTC Library Collections

The UTC Library provides access to a world of information in every format available from books,e-books, and journals to online databases, digital image collections, CDs and DVDs. We also check out a variety of technological devices like laptops, chromebooks, digital and video cameras, scientific calculators, and sundry cables.

All items are available to current UTC students, faculty, and staff for check out and many resources can be accessed online from home via the UTC Library WorldCat Local system. Home access requires your UTC id and password. Community borrowers, alumni, and retired UTC faculty and staff also have library privileges, but access and policies vary.

You can search the UTC Library collections through a number of different tools. The most popular tool to search our collection of physical items (books, dvds, microfilm etc...) and online subscriptions (journals, articles, and e-books) is via UTC Library's WorldCat Local catalog. You can also search or browse collections by format, subject, or collection by utilizing the links on the left navigation bar.

Finally, the UTC Library's Collections include Special Collections, UTC Digital Collections, and UTC Scholar, which provide access to unique primary source materials and university research, creative works, and scholarship. Special Collections focuses primarily resources related to the cultural heritage of Chattanooga, the state of Tennessee, and the South, including the history of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
