The mission of the UTC Library is to provide access to the information and materials that support the teaching, research and public service programs of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The Library supports these programs by acquiring, organizing, managing, and preserving scholarly information in its own collections; by providing access to scholarly information which it does not own and which may be located elsewhere; by offering a variety of supportive reference and instruction services to the students, faculty and staff of the University; and by sharing information resources reciprocally with other libraries and institutions in the area, state, region, and nation.

The Lupton Library endeavors to provide leadership in the access, management, and use of scholarly information; to review and improve each of its programs and collections continuously; to budget its finite resources creatively; to secure sources of funding and other resources outside the normal state allocation process; and to apply technology dutifully in service of scholarship.
