Pendergrass LibraryWebster C. Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library
Beginning May 23, Pendergrass Library will close for installation of new flooring in the library foyer. The project is scheduled for completion within two weeks. During this time, library staff will be available to support your teaching, research, and learning—both online and at other UT Libraries locations. More information regarding our virtual support during this closure can be found on the Libraries’ Speaking Volumes blog
Pendergrass Library was the state depository for agriculture publications through 1989. As such, we followed Government Publishing Office (GPO) guidelines to keep items of historical importance. Currently, the University of Memphis is the regional depository library and is home to items published after 1989.
Also, Pendergrass maintains a large collection of Tennessee Soil Surveys. You can learn more on our Soil Survey guide.
