Finding Government Publications


The University of Memphis Library has been a Federal Depository since 1966. At that time we received about 65% of the materials that were offered through the Federal Depository Library Program.  In 1989 the Library became the Regional Depository for the state of Tennessee.  From that time forward the Library receives 100% of the offered materials.  There are 22 other depository libraries in Tennessee listed here. In order to be certain if the Library owns a document, several places must be checked depending upon the date.
