Pendergrass Library has collections relevant to agriculture and veterinary medicine. An overview of our collection is available on the Resources in Our Collection page. Items mostly focus on North American agriculture practices. But, we purchase items with an international focus when appropriate.

We purchase items published recently, and we preserve materials with historical and regional interest.

Types of items:

  • Books: covers areas of agriculture and veterinary medicine. We organize our items using the Library of Congress classification system.
  • Articles and journals: available in-print and online.
  • Government Documents – Pendergrass is state depository library for the USDA. As such, we maintain collections from federal, state, and local groups.
  • Visual resources: DVDs, VHS tapes, CD-ROMS
  • Leisure Reading Collection – We maintain a collection of new fiction and nonfiction books.
