The Federal Government Documents collection is located on the first
floor of the library building. The materials are shelved according to
the Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) numbering system. Historical
materials in the United States Serial Set dated before 1900 are
restricted use and may be requested through the Special Collection
Department on the sixth floor. Texas State Documents are shelved after
the Federal Documents in the Southern end of the first floor.
UTEP Library has a distinct advantage when it comes to collecting
unique materials of the area. The collection contains Mexican and U.S.
gazetteers, and is home to the INEGI Collection – a collection of over
3500 items of statistical and cartographic information on Mexico (in
Spanish). The map collection at the library numbers over 200,000 items
and contains U.S. and World topographic, geological, meteorological,
demographic, and aerial maps.
The Map Collection, Law Section, and Children's Collection are housed in
the Southeast section of the third floor, next to Library
Administration. You may ask for assistance in using these collections
