This research guide is intended to connect you with Carson-Newman Government Documents resourcesThe sections at your left will direct you to various types of resources; spend some time exploring each section.

The Carson-Newman Library is a selective United States government documents depository with access to thousands of government publications.

Please note: We are in the process of adding some of our older materials to the catalog. If you are looking for an item published prior to 2006 and don't see it in our online catalog, feel free to ask us about it.

If you are looking for maps published by the USGS (United States Geological Survey), they are housed in the map library in the Daugherty Science Building. Library staff will be happy to have the item brought to the library for your use.
