Explore 5 Decades of UTC History Online

Cover the the 1955 Moccasin yearbook.

Cover the the 1955 Moccasin yearbook, featuring a predecessor of Chief Moccanooga, the university’s mascot introduced in the 1970s.

Thirty volumes of the Moccasin, the university’s student-published yearbook, are now available in all of their searchable, full text glory in UTC Digital Collections. Investigate student life from 1911 to 1958, cover to cover, by exploring classes, faculty, administrators, clubs and societies, athletics, social functions, theatrical productions, and musical performances.

The Moccasin also documents trends in fashion and design. From the finger curls of the 1920s to the mid century modern graphic design of the 1950s, flip through decades of dress, design history, and architecture on campus.

Want more? Volumes of the yearbook will be added as they are processed by Special Collections & University Archives. In the meantime, view the complete run of the Moccasin in the Library.


ValueLine Temporarily Unavailable from Off-Campus

The electronic resource ValueLine changed to a new interface last week and most of the content in this database is currently inaccessible from off campus. The vendor is aware of this and hopefully a fix will be in place soon!

If you are off-campus and need assistance finding alternate research materials in the meantime, please contact the library.


Recent Changes to the UTC Library Electronic Resources

The UTC Library recently made a couple of changes to the online resources offered. Please refer to the updates below.

 

OXFORD REFERENCE ONLINE

Due to consistently low usage over several years, access to Oxford Reference Online has not been renewed.

This does NOT affect access to the following resources; you can still use the following through the UTC Library:

 

STAT!Ref

The library has chosen not to renew its subscription to Stat!Ref ebooks due to consistently low usage over several years. Students and faculty members are well-served by the nearly 2,000 recently published medical ebooks from Springer which can be accessed here.

Scheduled Maintenance Notice: EndNote Online

The citation management tool offered through UTC will be temporarily unavailable this weekend.

EndNote® online (& ResearcherID) will be undergoing an infrastructure upgrade on Saturday, June 21. The application will be unavailable for a period of approximately 15 hours starting at 9:00pm local time. The maintenance should be completed by 12:00pm on Sunday, June 22.  This outage will affect the EndNote online application, sync services, and interactions between Web of Science, ResearcherID and EndNote online.

Please plan your work around this scheduled outage and contact the Library if you have any questions.


New Learning Express Platform

Learning Express Library, a fantastic resource accessible through the UTC Library, includes test preparation, computer software instruction, and career tools. This resource has now moved to a new platform, which requires any users with accounts on the previous platforms to create new accounts. The database can be accessed here  or via LearningExpress Library in the database drop down menu from the UTC Library homepage search box.

Here are some changes on the new platform:

  • The Personal Finance e-book is currently not in 3.0
  • The elementary, middle and high school centers are now combined into the School Center.
  • The GED Center is now the High School Equivalency Center
  • There are 3 different ways to take a test:
  1. Learner mode: shows the answers as you go.
  2. Practice mode: most like 2.0; see the answers at the end, nothing bad happens when time is up.
  3. Simulation mode: now the timer counts! The test ends when time is up.

Video tutorials are available here.
