Please join the University of Tennessee Libraries as we celebrate 100 years of our service to the state as a Federal Depository Library on Tuesday, October 2.

The University of Tennessee Libraries is one of 43 land-grant university libraries across the nation that is celebrating their 100th year as a Federal Depository Library in 2007. We offer the general public, the UT community, and citizens of Tennessee free access to Federal Government information in any format provided through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). The collection consists of over one million books, microforms, maps, posters, CDs, and videotapes, as well as access to many online databases and websites.

As part of this celebration, Judith Russell, dean of libraries at the University of Florida and former Superintendent of Documents will speak at Hodges Library on October 2 at 3:30 pm. Russell will present The Federal Depository Library Program: A National Commitment to Public Access. An anniversary celebration, with cake, will follow immediately after the presentation.
