New Display in the Library

2012 marks the 100th anniversary of MTSU having a federal depository library. The Walker Library is celebrating this mark with an exhibit housed in two display cases located on the 1st floor (one case is located in the atrium and one is just past the elvators). This exhibit highlights some of the books, documents and even games from the Walker Library's Government Documents Collection.

Walker Library’s collection includes:

· Books

· Maps

· Microfiche

· Access to thousands of electronic resources

. Congressional documents

. Materials from Agriculture, Commerce, Interior & Defense departments.

The Federal Depository Library Program, established by Congress in 1813, ensures that Americans have access to Government information. Depository libraries collect, organize, maintain, preserve, and assist users with information from the Federal Government at no cost to the libraries or it’s users.
