Government Documents

GPO LogoSherrod Library has been a federal document depository for the First Congressional District of Tennessee since 1942, although many items in our collection were published prior to that date. We are currently 1 of 21 federal depository libraries in the state of Tennessee, selecting over 32% of the items distributed by the United States Government Printing Office. Our documents collection is one of the seven largest in Tennessee, and we serve as a shared regional depository, with the University of Memphis Library as the primary depository for the state.

Collection strengths are in areas relating to the environment, the Appalachian region, mining, health, justice, and veterans' affairs.

You can find government publications in all formats--print, microform, CD-ROM, and online--in OneSearch. Other useful websites for finding government information include:
