The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) Library has been a member of the Federal Depository Library Program since 1966 and serves the 16th Congressional District of Texas. The UTEP Library selects 66% of the government documents that are available through the Depository Program. Government materials from GPO come in a variety of formats (paper, microfiche, microfilm, CD-ROM, DVD, video) and all formats are represented in the collection. In addition to Federal Documents, the UTEP Library receives state documents from the Texas State Depository and local documents as well.
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.
Located along the border with Mexico, the UTEP Library has a distinct advantage when it comes to collecting unique materials of the area. The collection contains Mexican and U.S.
