United States documents
U.S. documents are shelved as a separate collection. They are arranged on the shelves by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification which groups materials by issuing agency. Please visit the Government Information office or the research desk in Library Services if you need assistance locating materials.
The documents stacks are accessible from the first floor, on either side of the alcove on the east side of the Gearhardt Reading Room. The stacks are three floors high on either side and do not have elevator access. Library staff are available to assist with the retrieval of documents.
Texas and European Union documents
The TCU Library has a robust collection of Texas state documents. The Texas State Depository Program ceased in July 2011 and the TCU Texas collection is current through that date. Most Texas publications are indexed in the library online catalog. This collection is located on the second level of the documents stacks, on the north side.
The TCU Library is also a European Union Documentation Centre. EU publications are cataloged in the online catalog and are shelved in the main stacks.
