Happy Anniversary, University Library!

Actually, it is "Happy Anniversaries!" The year 2008 marks the University Library's 60th anniversary as a member of the Louisiana State Documents Depository Program, and its 45th anniversary as a member of the Federal Depository Library Program.

Since December 11, 1948, the University Library has received copies of all State of Louisiana publications. The University Library is a "selective" depository for federal documents, which means that the Library does not receive all federal publications, but only those deemed most suitable to the purposes of the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Currently, the library receives about 35 percent of all federal documents distributed by the U.S. Government Printing Office.

The University Library and Government Publications Department will be celebrating these anniversaries with special events and activities throughout 2008.

For more information on the state and federal collections available through your library, please visit the Government Publications Office, Room 210, or check out the website,
