Special Collections

We acquire, preserve, and provide open access to rich cultural heritage resources that document Chattanooga, the state of Tennessee, and the South including the history of the University.

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and the Chattanooga Public Library are proud to curate the collections of the recently-folded Chattanooga History Center. The materials are accessible to the public in the George Connor Special Collections Reading Room located on the 4th floor of the UTC Library. Researchers my also consult a representative sampling of the resources in the Chattanooga History Collections Online digital library.
