The University of Texas at El Paso’s Library has been recognized for being a fifty-year member of the Federal Depository Library Program.
“UTEP should be proud of its role in helping the residents of El Paso to compete globally,” said Charles Gaunce, head of government documents and maps at the University Library.
“Being a depository library for the past 50 years has been a large part of UTEP’s ability to perform this function.”
The University Library makes its collection of government documents available to anyone free of charge. This makes it possible for students of all ages to have access to high-quality documents for research without incurring significant travel expenses and time delays.
“Accurate and authoritative information is essential to the curriculum, to faculty and student research, and to users of the UTEP Library,” said Robert Stakes, library director and associate vice president for University Advancement.
“By being a participant in the Government Publishing Office’s Federal Depository Library Program for the past 50 years, The University of Texas at El Paso Library has been providing this needed information to the campus community and contributing to UTEP’s successful competition in the world economy.”
As a repository of accurate and authoritative information, the UTEP Library seeks to level the playing field for all residents of the El Paso community, and let them make appropriate decisions concerning their health, welfare, politics and economics.
