Monroe Mayor James E. Mayo’s office will officially declare Thursday, Sept. 25, as “University of Louisiana at Monroe Documents Depository Program Day.”
The proclamation will be presented tomorrow at the ULM Library’s “Celebrating 60 Years of Documents” program reception from 4–5:30 p.m. in the library’s Special Collections section (Passman Room on the ULM Library’s fifth floor). Representatives from the mayor’s office and the ULM administration will be on hand, along with ULM’s mascot Ace. Members of the media are encouraged to attend.
Program activities officially begin at 1 p.m. in the ULM Conference Center (located on the ULM Library’s seventh floor), as guest speakers Charlene Cain and Lori Smith offer related lectures.
The library will commemorate 60 years as a charter member of the Louisiana State Documents Depository Program (start date: Dec. 11, 1948) and 45 years as a member of the Federal Depository Libraries Program (start date: Feb. 5, 1963).

Both the state and federal depository programs constitute a proverbial library within a library—supporting the university students, faculty, administration, and staff, but also providing free community access to government publications. There are approximately 240,000 federal and State of Louisiana publications at the ULM Library.
