Government Publications

As the Federal Regional Depository Library for Tennessee, Government Publications receives and provides research help with all the publications, maps, and electronic data distributed by the Government Publishing Office. Government Publications is also a depository for Tennessee state documents.

Government publications are available to the faculty, staff, and students of the University of Memphis and to the general public during the hours that the Ned R. McWherter Library is open. Reference assistance is available at the Research and Information Services Desk on the first floor. Our Ask a Librarian service provides reference assistance via email, chat, and text. Individual consultations and classroom instruction may also be requested.

All formats of government publications circulate in accordance with the Check-Out Guidelines for the general collection. Some exceptions include reference materials, periodicals, and rare or fragile documents.
