WKU Libraries Approved as Center of Excellence

wku libraries 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/11/14) — Western Kentucky University Libraries was recently approved as a Center of Excellence for the Office of the Vice President of the United States.

The Center of Excellence program is part of the Collaborative Federal Depository Program for the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries.

Rosemary Meszaros, Professor and Coordinator of Government Documents & Law, said WKU Libraries will be required to collect all federal documents that have been published by the Office of the Vice President.

“We have successfully performed an inventory of our collection and compared it to the list of documents of the US Government Printing Office,” Meszaros said. “Our holdings will now have two copies available and will be posted to the Online Computer Library Center’s database system. We also plan to digitize all the documents and participate in the Interlibrary Loan process.”

According to The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries, these Centers of Excellence will result in more reliable and predictable access to Federal publications for all libraries and citizens in the Southeastern states by specifying which Depository Libraries have the most complete holdings for each agency.

WKU Libraries celebrated its 80th year as a Federal Depository Library—one of 1,200 around the nation providing government information to citizens.
